You want me to get up at what time???

Hi my name is Erin Brucker, otherwise known as mini-Brucker or Gary’s daughter (as I often live in the shadow of this guy…. its a pretty big one). But let it be known, I am indeed my own person and also do #justshowup Wednesday mornings.

I have been apart of the NP tribe for over a year now. I stumbled upon the great Roz Huber’s Instagram a while ago and followed along where I first was introduced to something called the November Project. I had no idea what it involved except for the fact that she would post about a free workout at 6:29am. It intrigued me but, like most other people, I am not a morning person, hence I never showed up. While being pace bunnies for the Wine Country Half that year, my dad met this awesome dude named Steve Morrison who introduced him to the idea of November Project. He brought it up to me and I was like, “Yea. that’s what this cool girl Roz does. We should go.” So we went the following Wednesday together (which Gary fails to mention in his blog post). Was it easy to get up that dark, early and cold October morning? Definitely not. Was it worth it? Most definitely yes. I definitely was not expecting the loud, obnoxiousness and excitement that was THE BOUNCE. But it is still by far one of my favourite parts of starting Wednesdays. I remember being partnered with the speedy Taylor Horsting the first day and pushing to keep up. I left feeling on a high and with more friends than I had the day before. read more

NP to Me

Hey guys! I’m Olivia. (“Hi Olivia!” *clap clap*)

So. November Project. It can mean so little. It definitely meant nothing to me when I was first told about it. But it can also mean SO MUCH. It means more than almost anything to me now.

My first NP was on February 7th this year. That’s crazy to me because it feels like it’s been forever since I started going. Anyway. When I asked my friend, Leah, the night before if she wanted to go to the gym that next Wednesday morning she said that she had something she was doing in Kelowna at that time and that actually I should definitely come with her. We live in Vernon so I remember first thinking “What on earth do you have to do at 5:30 in the morning on a Wednesday in KELOWNA.” Closely followed by “Sure, why not, I’ll come.” I had learned to trust Leah’s crazy plans. read more

A Story of Firsts

Holy shit guys this is really happening. We are starting up the blog.

What is the blog you ask?

It’s a place for us to talk about… well anything really. It’s a place for us to talk about the deep questions like, “who is louder, Michelle or Steve? “

Or maybe to fawn over the pictures of the dogs in our group. read more
