DECIDE to Just Do It!

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Iíve been struggling with what my DECIDE will be for the BLC Just Do It challenge. I feel like it has to be something huge but thatís my own interpretation. Iíve decided Iím going to call it my procrastination with signing up for walks. I walked the Komen 5K 8 years ago and since then Iíve been saying Iím ďgoing toĒ sign up for this 5K, that race, etc., but I never actually do. Since about November Iíve been talking to some friends about the upcoming Colors in Motion 5K here in Houston next month. Yesterday I FINALLY started a team and registered DD and I for the race! My BFF at work is doing it with us with her oldest 2 boys, and all of a sudden there are about 6 others that are interested. I am happy that Iíve ďjust done itĒ and sparked interest in others at the same time!

    Congrats! I did a color run in San Diego last year. It was a lot of fun! It sounds like you're sparking a lot of people now. Great job!

    Awesome! Glad you decided!! I did the Color Run as a walk (just like Colors in Motion) with some friends and we had a ton of fun!! I'm sure you'll love it!! Now I just need to get my rear in gear to actually run a 5K since that's been on my procrastination list for a long time!

    This is a great do it-- and I'm so happy for you that it's done. It's weird, this self we have that wants to do things but for whatever reason doesn't-- I'm glad you reconciled with your procrastinating self. You even went beyond and created a team-- whoa.

    sounds like a great goal. Sometimes I am so good at procrastination that I need to just do it.

Best wishes on the race. I love it when simple things help others to their goals.
