The last Wednesday of every month, as most of you know, is PR Day. It is the one workout every month that all nineteen November Project tribes across North America share. Each city’s PR Day looks different, given that we are all using different locations: DC has the Lincoln Memorial, Boston has Harvard Stadium, etc. The workout, however, really isn’t the point of PR Day. Now, I know you may read that and think “…how is the workout not the point at a group that provides free WORKOUTS twice a week?” And maybe for some of you the workout is the thing that drives you out of bed and Wednesday morning and gets you down to Rash Field. That’s great, we love having you here each week. I have a hunch, though, that many of you are seeking — and have found — something much greater in November Project.
November Project was founded and has flourished on the concepts of accountability and community. Not only do you hold each other accountable to show up when you say you will, but you hold yourselves accountable to strive to be the best person that you can be. PR Day is your chance each month to see if the effort you have put in over the last 30 days has made you a stronger, faster person. I know for a fact that each one of you pushes to be better each month. I would be surprised if you got progressively slower each month and were totally okay with it (unless your name is Becca and you are getting progressively more and more pregnant. That’s a pretty legit excuse). When you show up at PR Day, you are ready to give everything you’ve got. Now, imagine this:
What if you took that passion, that fire, and applied it to each day of your life? What if you made every day PR Day?
“If you’re coasting, then you’re going downhill.” I came across this quote recently and I think it’s a good one to share here. This is not to say that we don’t deserve rewards, breaks, or rest days; but what it does say is that we should never settle with where we are. I hear about so many of the incredible things that you all are doing (and wonder how you have enough hours in the day to accomplish them all), and it inspires me to be better. November Project will always be there to help you get ready for beach season, and it will also always be there to push you to be more than you thought you could be.
This week’s Positivity Award goes to a man who is so bad-ass that most of the letters in his first name ran away out of fear, leaving us to know him simply as K. K has committed to running at least two miles every day of 2015. If that isn’t inspiring, I don’t know what it. Congratulations dude!
Saturday, May 30th. 4:30PM. #BeMore_Bmore. Be there.
