Just Do It

I went running yesterday with an amazing woman. Not only did she bring her four-legged friend who might as well have run the doors off me, but she also pushed me in more ways than one. Our conversation was deep—life, goals, passions, why our calves hurt—but never became too heavy. As we ran next to Boulder Creek, twilight seeping into the canyon and pink clouds wafting overhead, she said some that shook me: “So why don’t you just do it?” It was the same thing I ask people every day. And then I did exactly what I say NOT to do and stumbled out excuses justifying my slothfulness. “I guess I don’t get it,” she said back. And then it hit me. She’s right. I should just do it.

    Great, Tim, here I am trying to stop spending and your “amazing woman” thread sends me to her website with great bags! HA. (Tempting, but I have to resist.) Oh, and, do WHAT? Slothful is not a word I would use to describe you in any of your incarnations…
