No Excuses!

Posted by Filed Under: Inspiration & Motivation, Video

I always feel a little apologetic when I use a professionally produced commercial as the inspirational video of the week but sometimes they just speak to me. As the perenial Queen of Cheap Excuses this one had me at ‘my dog is sick’

Check this out and see if any of it resonates with you – and then make it stop.

About 21stCenturyMom

I found myself at the age of 38 the single full time working mother of 3 small children. I took up running because I figured I could get the biggest benefit in the least amount of time. Swearing never to run a marathon I found myself going out for a 4 - 6 mile run several times a week. I ran my first marathon 6 years later. Five years after that I ran another and then the next year another. Then I got bit by the triathlon bug so now I split my time between running, swimming and cycling. This year I think I'll run another marathon. And next year - who knows?

    So often we make excuses that really just don’t cut it. I didn’t make any today and raced in -30C (with windchill). Felt good to do it.

    I saw this one when I watched the Super Bowl. Sadly, I guessed the “punch line” and ruined it for the other folks watching it.
