Hey. Is this thing on? It’s been a while since I got behind the wheel of one of these blog posts. We have some **really rad** things in the pipeline and I wanted all the information in one place to make it user friendly. This also makes it friendly for you to share with colleagues/neighbors/friends/ family…I think you catch my drift! So, please, do exactly that! FRIDAY FRIDAY FRIDAY we report back to the bottom of the Baltimore Street Hill. Baltimore and Linwood! Do not go to the Patterson park Central Pavilion. I repeat, do not go to the Central Pavilion! Not only will it be extremely dark but also you will be extremely lonely! read more

The Whole Tribe has Crabs!

This morning, legs made their debut appearance. YES, bare-freaking-legs. Perhaps it was my father’s proud love of his calves that sparked this movement in Charm City today, we cannot be sure. Whatever the reason, we were all too happy to beat the ground in weather over 20 degrees to earn our fifteen.

“Fifteen?” You kindly ask. Fifteen letters in ‘November Project.’ Fifteen reasons to say “hell yes” to getting out of bed in the morning. Fifteen sets of sprints, push-ups, perfect planks, and sexy squats to earn those fifteen capital letters and wear them proudly on our new #GrassrootsGear (Flashback to high school varsity? Too soon for that crap?)

Our tribe members stripped their clothes (hello 36 degrees!) and jetted down the distance, leaving no (wo)man behind. We tagged. We hugged for awkwardly long periods of time. We admitted we all had crabs for the sake of our new mascot. And we admired the most perfect sunrise through our sweat-filled eyes.

Bare calves and all, we earned every one of those fifteen-freaking-letters. The NP Baltimore tribe, even while looking for lice-killing lotion, is stronger than ever.

P.S. So many props to Melanie for killing the gear-tagging and Joe for the to-die-for crab stencil. We couldn’t have done it without either of you!
