…but for us at November Project, it means so much more than all of this.

PR – even though we also call it PB in Canada – is almost like a ceremony of some sorts where all of us come and push ourselves at our upmost to better our times in a secure and familial setting. It is that one-day of the month where we could let our hair down, be surrounded by people we trust and love, remove four (4) layers of clothing and push push push. It is so awesome to see everyone give it all they got.

And that is exactly what we saw this morning in Montréal. Other than being Taylor’s birthday – Bonne fête Taylor – people came to celebrate their achievement up and down Place Jacques-Cartier. The elastic bands are handed out so that participants could count how many laps were completed in the allotted 20-minute timed period…and the tribe crushed it again this morning. We saw tribe member Jacob running sub-3minute laps and other tribe members actually shedding off 1:30 minutes off their PB. That is amazing and this tribe is amazing.

Keep on rocking it November Project Montréal and see ya next week…
