The November Project Movement, March 2013

From small beginnings here in Boston, to the family connection and hometown love in Madison, Wisconsin, and all the way out to the good people in rural Uganda, November Project is a movement that is changing the way people are training, racing, and interacting with the people in their community. It seems this month has been huge for us.

A lot of what is happening in Madison, where my brother-from-exactly-the-same-mother, DAN GRAHAM is training in the early morning, is even more explosive than the fire we’ve caught in the 617. Dan, or “DG” as everyone knows him, is connected to the people and community in Madison more than any other place on this planet. Currently DG’s facing an awesome challenge: Starting the first official NP city outside of Boston in the middle of the winter… real winter… not this snow twice per month New England nonsense that we all rush out and buy bottled water for… real winter… 44 days below 4 (degrees) type beatdown. We are proud of what DG and his tribe have done already and we’re looking forward to continued racing, recruiting, and community building @Nov_Project_MSN. With jokes in our holsters we want to officially tell you DG that we’re very proud of you & “NP MSN” and the February/March Chapter that’s taken you from one person to over 30 (including dogs). Keep saving your Dahler’s and race on my man, race… on.

New England’s own Chronicle featured the November Project (BOS) last night on the staple documentary news show that many Rob Dalton’s grew up watching. Chronicle highlights a local topic and goes in depth with the people and places that are involved with this issue and impact. Take a look…

November Project Uganda? We need to explain. A longtime Northeastern University runner friend named Laura McCloskey* is now a Traveling Physical Therapist for Fusion Medical Staffing. She’s literally been all over the world and seen more cool, harsh, and inspiring human situations than she could possibly share with all of us. Last month she created a donation station at many of our workouts, collecting shoes and clothing from the many core members who were training with November Project (BOS) even when the snow kept us out of Harvard Stadium. With donations in hand she made her way to her PT project with a little NP plan up her sleeve. From a mad-dash footrace to the claaaaaaaaasic Mr.Birdman & #GrassrootsGear shots show and tell, her video may bring a few of you fanatic NP members some extra pride. Enjoy…

*Just before leaving the states with 200+ pounds of stenciled shirts and donated shoes from the November Project (BOS) she dropped by and we painted another 20 shirts because she just had to have them. She has now moved away from Boston to San Francisco via November Project Uganda. Her last few days in Boston she was proudly carrying the one and only #PositivityAward. Don’t be surprised to see Laura starting our next wing in her new hometown.

  1. Wait, what are they doing drinking Sam Adams for in Wisconsin? If it’s before noon, Leinie’s/Miller/PBR/etc are the only acceptable options, right?
