The Drive for 75!
Unless you have been under a rock for the past couple of weeks, you have been hearing this phrase on all of our social media accounts. If you haven't, then maybe you need to start coming to more workouts! Kidding...no, not really!
Okay, okay, let me break it down for you. Most of you know we have been a November Project pledge for quite some time. In fact some might say way too long. But the struggle is real. Like really real. We have been doing our thing, promoting FREE fitness, changing peoples lives, and just plain ole "doing good" in our community. So it really was not a surprise when the powers that be started hearing our noise. Yes, they started taking notice that we now have three dedicated workouts a week, an unofficial track night, a race--sunrise 6k--that drew bigger number than most tribes, and yes, they hear our "FUCK YEAH'S" every week. With that being said, they stepped up with a proposed deal and we accepted. Here's the thing, in order for us to become an official NP Tribe, one of the challenges within the deal was to recruit over 75 people to a workout.
No big deal right? I mean we have been fast approaching 55-60 every Wednesday. We certainly thought this was right up our ally. Challenge accepted. Now you see all of the #drivefor75 posts and more recently the piñata talk! So what is this exactly does this mean? The piñata is typically an object that is hung up while people take turns hitting it with a stick until all of the delicious goodies stored inside come spewing out on to the ground. But in our case, our "piñata" is a box filled with apparel which has been tagged with a new WRBD tag. We have several different brands of clothing, from female racer-back tanks to men's t-shirts. There are pink ones, red ones, blue ones, and white ones. Needless to say, we have an awesome hodge-podge of shirts inside our box.
Come on, you know you want whats in our box. You know you do! So how do you get into our box? How do you get to slide your hands into this box? Well it is simple, tell your friends to come to a workout. Tell your parents, your neighbors, your co-workers, bring your kids, or whoever you want to bring. Just bring them!! #justshowup. Just show up, and when we get a minimum of 75 people at a workout, each person in attendance will get to slide there hand into our box and pick one goodie. From there you can barter, sell, or give away your awesome prize with another tribe member--or maybe you just want to put it on eBay, because the tag is going to be one of a kind--the most EPIC tag ever!
So in the mean time, we will bring our box to every workout. You can look, but you cannot touch. Take a selfie with our box, post those pictures on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Make a video with our box. Basically, tell the world about our box. Tribe, this is your box...come and get it!
