What happens when you promote a goodwill workout on National Running Day? A sure-to- crush- your hangover workout smack in the middle of Philly Beer Week? And offer to send folks home with a delicious beer post sweat-fest? We were eager to find out so we did all that this week – yeah we did – and people showed up! Boy did they SHOW UP! About 150 tribesfolk got sweaty with us the a.m. and more newbies were in the house today than…er… EVER – IT WAS DOPE!
The workout consisted of lots of running today in honor of NRD. We split the tribe in two – one group running the loop one and a half times, while the other did reverse suicides. Once each group reached the top or bottom of The Steps, partner pushups and partner squats were performed. Then switch! Forty minutes on the clock – keep getting sweaty, giving hugs, cheering and smiling. BOOM!
Mike gave The Hard Hat to Beth. She is a fierce competitor, she is strong as an ox and she truly represents NP_PHL to the core! Have a blast with the Hat this week Beth – well deserved!
We gave Anush the Positivity Award today – I can’t describe it better than he did so…
“This morning was the best f*cking morning of my life. Coming to my first #np_phl workout was the best f*cking decision I ever made. Every single one of you who makes it out for these Wednesday morning #lovesfests are f*cking amazing! It is the reason why I come back every week. I have met and keep meeting people who just truly f*cking amaze me with work that they do for this community and just being wonderful human beings. I thank you! Dan and Suzanne you are two of the most badass, hard working, infectious souls I have met! Thank you! What made this morning sweeter (or hoppier) was the beer. Thanks for the initiative Jon! P.S. In all this excitement I completely forgot to pick up my tagged gear!” – Anush you rock! Thank you for being part of the tribe a part of the family!
Post workout – we collected a ton of gently used sneaks for Project HOME! The promise of a beer in return for said sneaks was definitely a motivator for some, if not most –okay pretty much all! Huge ups to Jon Lyons from Southern Tier Brewing Company & RUN215 for the PBW brews – we love you!
SUPER COOL NEWS ALERT: Friday workouts are the real deal – We’ll be kickin it at Franklin Field on UPENN’s campus starting FRIDAY JUNE 13TH Try to contain yourselves til then – and #recruiteveryone in the mean time!
The vibe today was so real it was intoxicating! The smile y’all put on our faces this am will carry us to next Wednesday morning when we meet again. We hope the same for you!
