May Gray PR Day (LAX)

PR day was great.  Another one in the books and for some reason another misty morning for Southern California.  It seems as though June Gloom was overeager and decided to arrive for a good portion of May.  Well, looks like we can prove that we are at least in some bit #weatherproof.  Just kidding, I’m sure that I’ll get plenty of flack for that from other tribes who have to deal with actually cold temperatures and the natural elements like wind, rain, snow, sleet, etc. etc.

Anyways, PR day.  It tends to be a bit ominous when you announce that the workout is PR day.  For those of you who don’t know what PR is, it stands for Personal Record.  Now, in the most basic sense, it’s outperforming whatever you did last time.  For example, running a race and then racing even faster the next time around.  For the LAX course, that basically means adding another rep to your belt for the number of hills and burpees completed.

But there is so much more to earning a personal record.  Fearing that you won’t PR that morning doesn’t mean you shouldn’t show up. Each time you show up, you open up your opportunities to try something new, to push yourself and to maybe help someone else earn that next rep.  This is a community and it’s the energy that everyone has brought to the table that makes it so powerful.  I love it.  Let’s keep this up!

Also, a big welcome to two new tribes NP_Newport (RI) and NP_Providence (RI).  That makes it a whopping 49 tribes now.  #worldtakeover
