Smoke was in the air this morning…the cause – the NP Canada tribe rippin up and down the hill this morning. While I had a hard time distinguishing between paint fumes and forest fire smoke, Nadim assures me that it was all of you who contributed to the particulate matter in the atmosphere. Good job!
I feel the need to clarify the “Injury Deck” that I wrote about for Wednesday’s blog post. There is only 1 workout for the tribe each morning…Mondays are our circuit destination workouts, Wednesdays are stairs, and Fridays are hills. One of the reasons our community is so strong is because we collectively sweat, swear, battle, and succeed in these workouts. Each morning that we meet we have a goal – to unite and conquer the day’s challenge. We support one another as we all make strides to improve – crushing last week’s distance, time or whatever the goal is that you set. If we start to break away from that collective frame of mind and people start to do their own thing within those workouts we weaken the tribe. The injury deck is not a second option for a workout, its for tribe members who have injuries and have been told by their doctor that they cannot do hills or stairs because it will do them further damage. When you’re injured being around positive energy helps the healing process. Anyone who has been sidelined but an injury will tell you that they’d give anything to run stairs and hills with the tribe. So if you are injured and not allowed to run or walk the hills or stairs, you can still come in the mornings and contribute to the amazing NP atmosphere. There is always a place for more cheerleaders, high 5ers, photopgraphers & taggers, but if you’re just tired of running the hill because it’s hard and it sucks…yup…its hard and it sucks and that’s what makes us stronger! Keep on running!
