November Project

Today I had to be at work early or rather earlier than usual. I intended to be there by 7:15 am but traffic was light and train arrived right away, so I got to work at 6:45 am!

Just around the corner from work I see this group of people working out in the sidewalk. It peaked my interest and since I was a whole half hour early to work I decided to take a quick detour.

I was able to talk to one of the organizers and he told me all about the November Project. I never heard of them before. Now that I know a bit more about them, I think it’s a pretty cool idea and I’ll see if it’s something I can join. To join simply follow their blog and show up at the designated location. I think I can do that!

November Project™ is a FREE fitness movement that was born in Boston as a way to stay in shape during cold New England months. Now present in multiple cities in across four time zones in North America, the movement is using a simple sense of accountability (verbal) to motivate and encourage people of all ages, shapes, sizes and fitness levels to get out of their beds and get moving.

Boston

Today I had a chance to take a long lunch break. As I’ve mentioned before, I absolutely love Boston. It seems there’s a historical place around every corner. I also feel as if I can see the entire world go by if I stand still and just people watch for a while. Walking around Downtown Boston is great and I should do it more often.

Today for an hour and a half I became a tourist. Here’s my photo report 🙂

The Rose Kennedy Greenway – 1.5 mile string of parks with a carousel, grassy areas & rotating contemporary art exhibitions.
Quincy Market & Faneuil Hall Marketplace
The Old State House – On July 18, 1776, citizens gathered in the street to hear the Declaration of Independence read from the building’s balcony, the first public reading in Massachusetts.
The Freedom Trail – 2.5-mile-long path through downtown Boston that passes by 16 locations significant to the history of the United States
The Boston Massacre – Major event in the American Revolutionary War. British Army soldiers killed five male civilians and injured six others on March 5, 1770.
The Massachusetts State House – the state capitol and seat of government for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
Federal Reserve Bank of Boston
I probably spend over 60% of my time here
