The November Project Wants Mayor Marty Walsh to Lace Up His Sneakers

Will the first-term mayor join the free fitness movement for a workout?

The November Project, a free fitness movement born in Boston—which let’s face it, if you don’t know about it already then you obviously do not read any website, newspaper, or magazine in town—really, really, really wants Mayor Marty Walsh to join the group for a workout. Evidence below:

The mayor of Edmonton joined the Canadian outpost of the group for its early morning workout. In fact, he was with Andrew Ference, a former Bruins player and current member of the Edmonton Oilers, who was one of the original Boston November Project members.

Clearly, this has made the Boston flagship a bit jealous. We reached out to the mayor’s office about a week ago and have not heard back. If Mayor Walsh does choose to comment or commit to a workout we’ll update this post. But, frankly, the mayor doesn’t even have to reply. He can do that same thing that anyone who wants to join the November Project for a workout does: #justshowup.

    On Saturday, Mayor Walsh attended a ceremony where he received a check for over $450K from the One Run for Boston, a cross country relay organized to raise funds for the victims of the Marathon bombings. The One Run has lots of November Project people involved and I captured this picture of the Mayor, right after he verballed to attend November Project. He definitely knew what we were talking about. Thanks for helping us spread the word.
