Pretty & Gritty (BOS 5.6.19)

We’ve made it through the roughest part of winter and mayyyybe through the rainiest part of spring, which means the city is starting to look pretty. The trees are blooming and there’s incredible color just about every where you look. This morning’s workout location was flanked by trees dropping rich pink and white petals on us as we sprinted down the sidewalks between sets of plank walks, lunges, and burpees.

And then for the second part of the workout, we found a gritty alley way, with a super steep incline at the end–which made a perfect location for a burnout of sprints up that little alley way hill.

All of this morning makes it easy to appreciate our city for everything it offers. Amazing opportunities for fitness and community in both it’s prettiest and grittiest spots. And it’s nice to just show up–not knowing exactly what you’re going to get, only to find some beauty and some dirt, some hugs/high-fives and some sweat, and some relief after the hard work.

This city is absolutely amazing–it’s both pretty and gritty. And this community is too. Awesome and awe-inspiring humans keep showing up just for the joy and hard work of free fitness with November Project, and in turn, they add to the richness and beauty of the city, as well as to the grit and fierceness of it too. If you’re reading this after attending the workout, you know how good it was. And if you’re reading this after NOT being at the workout this morning, even if you’ve never been to a Monday–wait…especially if you’ve never been to a Monday, start thinking about what’s getting in your way. And see if even just one time, you can overcome that to check out what all the hype is about.

Mondays are WHERE IT’S AT. Keep showing up, keep changing the world.

See you this week on WEDNESDAY 5:30 & 6:30am at Harvard Stadium for stairs, and FRIDAY 6:30am at Corey Hill Outlook Park for hills.
