Just Do It

I think Nike spun some genius when they launched their Just Do It add campaign in 1988. I found it hard to believe that the slogan was 20+ years old.

Several months ago I was in my local sporting goods store needing some running stuff and found a shirt that said "Lazy Sucks..Just Do it" I laughed and bought it almost instantly. It was on sale after all. Now it has become my lucky running shirt. I'll put it on Sunday morning to run my 1st ever 1/2 marathon. As an update my Dad told me just the other day I can do anything I set my mind to...Thanks Daddy. I knew he was just giving me a hard time.

I've prepared. I did my short runs this week. I've rested like the training schedules tell you to. I downloaded some new songs for my running play list and broke in some new Asics. It's all I can do. But I've found myself fairly crabby all week leading up to this half marathon craziness... why I wonder?

The lesson in my Mom's group this week was on Identity.. and even as a Mom you should maintain a sense of self and it's important for your kids to see your passion in life. I'll blog more on this after I finish on Sunday.. but I've found myself thinking about this.

That's all I've got for now. Holla.
