Oakland <3s Hadar

This is Hadar.

She’s awesome.

Hadar is the first and very deserving recipient of November Project Oakland’s Positivity Award. Hadar is one of those people we’ve all met at November Project: someone who’s new to an area, decided to check out NP, and just kept. showing. up. She shows up to every workout. She shows up to NPSF hills on Fridays. She shows up to happy hour. She showed up to Bay to Breakers.

So when she told us how #NP_OAK helped her find friends in a new city and that she’s running her first marathon this weekend, we knew we’d found the right person to carry the oar handle for the first time.

Meanwhile, the rest of the tribe seemed to have fun with Rebecca’s Call Me Maybe workout this morning.


  • This Sunday, the Bay Area Discovery Museum is throwing its annual Amazing Athletes festival, and November Project will be there this year! The Amazing Athletes festival uses STEM and Art to explore fitness, sports, healthy habits, and other fun stuff. Alex and Paddy O’Leary from NPSF will be leading a fitness station at 12:30pm on Sunday, June 10 at the Bay Area Discovery Museum in Sausalito. Tell your friends!
  • It’s Pride Month! To join in the celebration of Pride, we’ll be making tagging shirts with rainbow NP tags next week. Bring a white t-shirt to the workout next Wednesday and Alex and Rebecca will take care of the rest.
  • East Bay Beer Runners and the Oaktown Half are hosting a happy hour tonight at Federation Brewing in Oakland. Come celebrate Global Running Day and watch the Dubs take on the Cavs.
  • Roger and Jen are hosting breakfast at their place in Adams Point after the workout next Wednesday. Shoot them a message on Facebook if you plan on attending so they know roughly how many guests to expect.

Next workout: Wednesday at the Lake Merritt Boating Center at 6:28am.

That’s it! Happy Global Running Day y’all. Get out there and keep being awesome.
