What’s nice? Pumpkin Spice!

Back to school Backpack workout!

We are two days into September and it already feels like fall! Crisp mornings at NP are always my favourite, watching the sunrise slowly and hearing the world waking up around us as we are halfway through our workout always makes Wednesday mornings feel extra remarkable to me.

This morning was so fun. It was wonderful seeing so many people still show up for each other on a Wednesday morning when we could all have stayed snuggled in bed for a sleep in. Thanks for making my day! Everyone worked hard on the bridge, I will forever admire how Andrew and Jessica can lunge across, in perfect synchrony, 50 feet ahead of everyone else. Geeze. Next up, the Reindeer Run and North Pole/South Pole made us all work hard but like all good things in life, work hard, play hard. Shout out to Willie Mac for the wild idea of showing up with ten crazy carpets to make this morning unforgettable. I just wonder if we will ever see the day where Scott doesn’t cheat and false start a race. Watching everyone try and fit 4 people on one crazy carpet was peak entertainment. Thank you. read more

WINNIPEG WINTER WARRIORS FOR THE WIN

Today was our first COLD workout of the winter and unsurprisingly you all crushed it! Winnipeg doesn’t just attempt #weatherproof, Winnipeg defines it. From the Woodbridge Gauntlet, to getting in the spirit with holiday tunes under the canopy, running levels in the cement castle wonderland this morning was a blast. Absolutely love how the whole crew humoured the hilarious burnout of pushing a truck all the way up the parkade. I personally like to believe we are just preparing you to be good citizens when a snowstorm hits and you’ll be pushing neighbours out of snowbanks! read more

Pumpkin Wall Sits

What a Spooktacular morning! Despite hitting our first – double digit numbers you still showed up in big numbers, costumed, carrying pumpkins! Monster Mash seems to be on the list of songs to listen to before we bounce at the next Halloworkout. We had our first taste of the Cement Castle Wonderland and boy did it feel good to be back, enjoying her beautiful structure, glistening mural walls and sneaky stairs. The pumpkin Pass race was hilarious and there was great team work carrying pumpkins for the circuit. Did anyone manage to eat more brownies than Scott? Was he really rolling sixes or doing any of the burpees? We will never know. read more

  • Friday, Sunrise 6K
  • July 17th, NP @ IG Stadium
  • July 19, Bombers Game
  • Shelby wins PA

Today was PR, and y’all crushed it. We had a bunch of PR’s, a bunch of you finished the 3 laps for the first time, and no one got lost, so we’ll call that a win. We tagged a bunch of shirts and kept the tags fresh.

Shelby won the PA, Shelby is awesome, she’s shows up all the time, she works hard, she’s always got a smile on her face. She is an amazing sailor and sailing coach, she brings her athletes to the workouts and she even changed their training schedule so that they are free on Wednesday mornings. Plus, Shelby has witnessed Willie Mac’s shenanigans for years, and does her darnedest to keep him in line. Shelby, we are glad that you are here.

Friday is the first in our Sunrise 6K series, we’re doing 3, on the last Friday of June, July and August. We’ve got 5 free race entries for MEC Race #2 on July 21st, so come out on Friday, run hard, and win a race.

That’s it, that’s all.
