The last person I’d ever connect to a corporation’s slogan is Pat Tillman. But knowing what I know/knew about Pat, and while out taking part in the annual Pat’s Run this morning, it was hard not to think “Just Do It.”
There were something like 28,000 people out around Arizona State taking part, and that’s just the Arizona version of the event. But in the spirit of Pat, running 4.2 miles isn’t what it is all about. It’s getting out and doing something, anything, that makes you push yourself to something you wouldn’t normally do. Doesn’t have to be athletic/exercise-related. Get out of your comfort zone. Again, push yourself. That’s the best way to honor Tillman, who — whether it was getting to the NFL, taking part in triathlons or joining the military — was always pushing himself.
Just do it.
