WOW. BEYOND WOW. Holy GUACOMOLE Ottawa. That was unreal. Can you believe that we get to head back into that stadium next week? Can you believe that you will run that PR Day again and try to complete one more section or finish two full tours in 29 minutes and 23 seconds? Lots of firsts this morning, for some it was your first bounce, your first introduction to the culture and community of November Project but for every single person that showed up this morning it was yours and our first stadium PR day. Sharing this morning with you, the stranger beside you and the person you cheered on in the section beside you was undeniably the best part of our day and probably week, that is until next Wednesday. But before we head back into the stadium did you leave it all out there this morning? Was there anything left in your tank?
I know we are not the only ones that have experienced the sheer and utter agony of seeing the little gas light flick on in our cars. The stress levels begin to rise as we sit gripping the steering wheel a little bit tighter. Of course, the gas light always turns on while your sitting in traffic, sweating bullets from the current heat wave. Please tell us we are not alone. But, here’s one thing that you might not have figured out cause you either a. Never let your gas tank get below half full or b. You drive a prius #blessya. Your gas tank should actually have a little bit extra, actually about 50km more worth of gas after that little light flicks on. Now you know there’s always more in the tank. There’s always that little bit more to get that much further. Now humans and those that attend November Project are not like cars but there is a simple comparison here. Our ability to strive and excel beyond our own capabilities is continuously surprising and improving. It’s just that, this morning when you showed up I bet you never expected to complete one full tour of the North side of the stadium. This idea that you have that much more in the tank to give is a notion that is not to be taken lightly. We want you to push yourself to the top of that set of stairs knowing that after 29 minutes and 23 seconds you could not have given anymore to the stadium.
So the question remains do you have more in the tank?
Did you leave everything and that much more in the stadium today? Or did you find yourself brushing off the cheers and race like mentality of encouragement from other tribe members and us, leaders? We want you to walk out of the stadium knowing that you held nothing back and there was nothing left in you this morning.
Congrats to every single one of you who showed up this morning and congrats for the PR’s all around. A special shoutout to our PR’s goal, crushers Jess and Seumus for making us chase them.
