Join the Vancouver November Project! We train every Wednesday morning at 6:29AM (rain or shine) with over 100 amazing people attending each week.

Today was a pretty big deal for our group. We were made an official November Project tribe and had a special visit from Brogan, one of the co-founders of NP. He gave our group leaders a ceremonial November Project sick to beat the slackers with (shown in the photo below) … just kidding! It’s a Boston oar which serves as the positivity award and is given to one shining individual each week.

We did an intense workout including the usual warm up jumping and the very unusual dry land swimming techniques lead by two Olympic swimmers. If that wasn’t embarrassing enough, we rode imaginary motorcycles while grunting and chanting.

“The work” consisted of squats, rowers, running (including a hill!), and “Backstreet Boys” push ups. The burnout involved crawling, running, toe taps, and a plank-type exercise. It sounds simple but it was tough! My arms will definitely be sore tomorrow (as usual).

Finally it was time for the moment we had all been waiting for … the shirt painting! We lined all our shirts up and Graham and Richard spray painted them with the “November Project” stencil as well as a special Vancouver symbol, the lion. I think we all got a little buzz from the fumes … or maybe I was just standing too close.

I started running about three years ago. Until this time i had never considered myself a runner and actually hated running. I’m not sure what changed but i’m glad it did! I enjoy sharing my thoughts, training, and experiences through my blog and encouraging and supporting others in their running journeys.

Since becoming a runner, I have completed a handful of half marathons, three full marathons, and four ultra marathons. However, my biggest accomplishments have been running the Rim2Rim2Rim in the Grand Canyon and completing a seven-day, 250km stage race in the Alps. These were adventures of a lifetime and something I had never imagined that I would do even in my wildest dreams!
