“NP is exactly like fight club…but with hugging.”
-Andrew Ference, 2011 Stanley Cup champion and member of November Project Edmonton.
“You could go through life alone, unfit, and numb to your prowess and potential. Or you could read this book. It’s entirely up to you.”
-David Willey, editor-in-chief of Runner’s World and member of November Project New York/Boston.
“A class at the gym is to November Project what riding in the back of a taxi is to space travel. There is nothing in the world of fitness, motivation, and sheer energy that compares to showing up at 6:27 a.m. with hundreds of screaming people ready to train in the cold, rain, snow, ice, sun, heat, and beauty of a city that is still asleep.”
-Casey Neistat, 34, filmmaker and entrepreneur, 3:02 marathoner, New York City, Boston tribe
“The whole thing’s fuckin’ weird.”
-Dean Karnazes, 53, renowned ultra runner and New York Times bestselling author, Milwaukee, Madison, San Francisco, and Boston tribes
“New requirements for any place I live in the future: There must be a tribe. What a bunch of brilliant, beautiful weirdos. I’ve finally found my people.”
-Chris Mosier, 35, LGBT advocate, first transgender athlete on Team USA (duathalon), New York City, New York City tribe
“The reason I joined the Tribe was the unique combination of fitness, community, respect, love, and most importantly inclusion. I love getting hugged by total strangers at 6:25 am. My fav hashtag: #JustShowUp.”
-Bart Yasso, 60, chief running officer, Runner’s World magazine, Emmaus, Penn., Philadelphia tribe
