My First Ultra-Marathon on the Playground of the Gods – Heather Bray

Today’s guest blog is brought to you by powerful athlete, amazing woman, loving mom, beautiful human & talented writer – Heather Bray ( @hulahooprunner )
Sit back, relax, enjoy the read and let the words below take you on a journey, a 53 kilometer jou
rney – an ultra- marathon!

Six months ago, I booked a flight to Cyprus. It was not because of a promise of charming villages, expansive coastlines, ancient history, mouth-watering Mediterranean cuisine, or an island encapsulated by the sun three hundred-plus days of the year, though these facts were persuasive. The reason to go to Cyprus, also known as the playground of the gods, was because a fellow November Project Tribe Member, Antoinette, had offered me a chance to run my first ultramarathon and I, as most avid runners would do, greedily accepted. read more

Heart of Darkness (21.09.16)

Today we start our #weatherproof journey into the cold darkness. By start, I mean pick up where we left off in May, and by cold darkness, I mean weather-that-seperates-the-bitches-from-the-badass. No matter what comes our way, we will be there, racing each other, pushing each other to be the best versions of ourselves, and murder whispering sweet nothings to each other and into the cold, dark, most probably wet, air. Amsterdam is not known for it’s sunny climate, but November Project is known for being #weatherproof, and we have the power to bring the light into each others Wednesdays every single week. All you have to do is show up.

This week’s positivity award goes to our Wan and only. He showed up in March, in the dark and in the monsoon style rain, and he has been spreading an incredible amount of positivity every single day since. Wan Man will pick you up when you’re down and cheer you on when you need it most. He will always remember/check Facebook for your birthday, and occasionally gift you with a piece of Tony Chocoloney. If you don’t know him, get to know him.

EXCITING PRE-ANNOUNCEMENT: Friday, September 30, 2016, November Project AMS (that’s us) will host a destination deck POP-UP workout! Same time, different day, different place. Mentally prepare yourself to wake up for TWO awesome hours of November Project in ONE week, get hyped, spread the word, and #justshowup. Location to follow, stay tuned.
