NPSF throws down a challenge to DC (not Dan Clayton)

What a week it was. NPSF absolutely demolished our previous attendance record with 203 people waking up the sun in Alta Plaza Park. 203 people! Well excuse my French, but that’s a shitload of people making the most of their Wednesday morning, getting their #freefitness in and helping build this amazing November Project community. By the end of 2014, the #NP17 community are going to get at least 3014 people out on a Wednesday morning #3014in2014, and way to chip in with a huge number, San Francisco.

As a side project, our Boston leaders, Bojan and BG set NPSF the task of shit-talking the tribe across in Washington DC. Well conveniently enough, our boys, the SF Giants, shutout the Pirates with a crushing 8-0 win, thus setting up a tantalizing wiffle-ball series against the Washington Nationals. NP_DCA coleaders, Steve and Danny, started the trash-talking rally early this morning blowing up our Facebook and Twitter.


Well as you can see, NPSF gives exactly what it gets. The tribe are all proudly repping the SF colours as they go about their lives post-#hillsforbreakfast


With the first game of the series kicking off in a little over an hour, NPSF want to lay down a little wager against our friends in the Capital. This is a best of 5 series, so here’s the challenge:

  • Champion wins by 1 game (3 games to 2): 
    Winning city sends a hat and shirt representing their team (i.e Giants hat) to losing city. Loser must post 20+ photos of people wearing/passing along on the shirt/hat combo during a workout.
  • Champion wins by 2 games (3 games to 1): 
    Same as above but losing city also sends case of a microbrew beer brewed in city or region.
  • Champion sweeps the loser (3 games to none):
    Same as above, but losing city chips in to buy a bib for a marathon/half marathon for a lucky tribe member in the winning city, i.e. Giants win (Giants will win!!) and DC crew buys an SF tribemember a bib for the Berkeley Half (example). Winning tribe leaders to select the lucky tribemember.

Steve, Danny, NP DCA, you guys in?

On a different note, the tribe took on the monstrous Divisadero Street (0.4 mile, 270 ft) today. The tribe turned out in force and well and duly crushed those hills #RoadToMarin. As per usual, we finished after 30 minutes at one of our many scenic view points. And wow, this morning we experienced quite the view. Glad the San Francisco summer decided to show up!


Have a great weekend, tribe. You kids earned it! See you all Monday at Fort Mason @ 6.24am. And remember, NPSF founder and coleader, Laura McCloskey, is making her triumphant return from Europe next week. You don’t want to miss out on that!
