The November Project San Diego

The early bird gets the better bod


Published:

The November Project began in Boston as an experiment to get people moving during the winter months. Since its inception in November 2011 (hence the name), the grassroots workout has expanded to 15 cities. The San Diego branch, or “tribe,” launched last October with just five attendees. Now, about 40 to 50 mostly twenty-somethings show up every Wednesday at 6:30 a.m. at Kate Sessions Park in Pacific Beach. Creating the free workouts—which typically include running, planks, squats, etc.—are Lauren Padula, Jessica Craik, and Ashleigh Voychick, former college roommates. Their goal is to get people out of their treadmill funks and back to interacting with others (Warning: There will be hugs from strangers).
