Red and orange, green and blue, highlighter yellow and purple, too. Those are the colors of our community spirit. Community is what this whole thing is about, connecting with and supporting our neighbors is what we are continually trying to achieve.
NPO had a lot to celebrate as we got our sweat on at sunrise. We were ready to welcome Global Running Day with long laps and a colorful workout. I met up with Lara, Sylvia G. and Jennifer at 5:45am to add a couple of more miles toward the Brooks/Strava Run it Forward challenge that ended Wednesday night. For me, running is more of a social activity, and thanks to November Project, I get many opportunities to log some miles. Our workout this week was inspired by the phenomenon itself, Roy G. Biv. We Reversed lunged, Oblique crunched, Y-raised, Glute bridged, burpeed, Inchworm push-upped, and V-sat our way into tip-top physical shape! Of course, being GRD, we threw a long lap in between each exercise. That also gave each colorful character in the group a chance to head over to the photo station where they got their individual shots for the NP yearbook, 2019 edition. It was really great to see some faces that we haven’t seen in a while… Nobody wants to miss out on yearbook photo day! The colors of the rainbow really suited all skin tones present in the early hours, and the smiles enhanced your looks even more! Like Kermit once said, “rainbows are visions and only illusions and rainbows have nothing to hide.” So don’t hide, come out and join us every Wednesday morning and see what this group can offer you.
