Heart

I had FUN on Spreadshirt.com yesterday. I really wanted to create something to wear in the Marathon to Honor my Dad.... the picture above is what I made... Dad died of an undiagnosed heart disease, we say he passed because His Heart was too Big :) I hope that the shirt turns out as good as it looks online and that it will work for 26.2++..

Also, I am working on creating a Tall Mom shop on Spreadshirts. Once it is up and Running I will post the link. I have been a SLACKER host for the Tall Mom 1,000+++ club lately.. No inspirational emails, no updates... SO SORRY :( I truly hope you are all making your mileage.. We are sooo close to the GOAL! And huge congrats to those who have passed the Milestone..

A couple quotes to leave you with on this RAINY day in Seattle...

"Wherever you go,
no matter what the weather,
always bring your own sunshine."
Anthony J. D'Angelo


"It's so hard when I have to,
and so easy when I want to."

Annie Gottlier


"Happiness is an attitude.
We either make ourselves miserable,
or happy and strong.
The amount of work is the same."
Francesca Reigler


One of my FAVORITES below..


If you don't like something change it;
if you can't change it,
change the way you think about it.
Mary Engelbreit


HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!!

I adore that shirt. He's going to be with you the entire 26.2 miles.

That last quote is awesome. I'm writing it down on a little post it and sticking it on my fridge.

That shirt is absolutly perfect. And hit such a soft spot with me, I lost my dad suddenly to heart disease in 2008. I have been wanting to run a marathon in his memory. I think I should make that my 2011 goal!

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

It's true. Simply think about your shirt. Your Dad's heart was too big. I love the way you are choosing to "look" at those words. You are a strong woman. Your shirt will be awesome.

I know I am waaaaaay behind in updating the 1000++++ spreadsheet. Opps. I'll get it caught up before year's end.

I love the shirt you created! I think it's a great way to honor your dad and to have him with you all 26.2 miles. The quotes you posted are also a good reminder of what's important in life. Keep up your strengh & courage through this tough time. Your dad would be so proud.
