  27. WOW!!! This is so cool!! I loveeee Saucony and especially love their FInd Your Strong Ad Campaign.

  28. I want to be you when I grow up!!! Except you are only days older than me… hmmmm

    Anyway, the video is frigin amazing. I am so insanely proud of you. I cannot wait to see the whole video on YOU!

    It is HUGE that they ended the video on YOU. HUGE. I work in advertising, I edit videos/commercials for a living. They wanted the audience to end the piece watching YOU!

    You’re my inspiration.

    PS, I want your abs.

  30. I’ve been horribly busy the past month and a half and I’m catching up on my blogs…and I wanted to first and foremost come out of hiding to say,

    You look absolutely phenomenal. Strong. Inspiring. Full of life. And again…super inspiring. And I totally agree with Lizzy above. I wanna be you when I grow up! (And I’m a momma of 2 and only a few months younger than you. ;))

    Kristy recently posted..Thursday ConfessionsMy Profile

  33. Dorothy! I can’t stop watching this! It seriously gives me chills, what a fantastic campaign! You must be pinching yourself, I’m so happy someone who works as hard as you do got to be a part of this! I just want you to know that you are a HUGE inspiration to me. I don’t have kids, but sometimes when I think I may want them it totally freaks me out, but then by reading some of your posts you prove that you can be a mom and a million other things and make it work. Your blog breathes fresh air into my workouts, I have never pushed myself as hard as this before and I do so because your stories inspire me to dig deep and see what I am made of, and not SETTLE for what I have accomplished. I am dreaming much bigger every day. Thank you for your amazing blog and sharing your stories with the world. I’m serious when I say you need to write a book! Keep on keepin’ on!

    I am sitting here on the West Coast, not knowing you from Adam, tearing up and at the same time laughing out loud because it is so incredible to see you in that video. Mamas REPRESENT.

    Also, I am not really a “fan” of any company and wear different brands of shoes at different times, but by putting you in this ad, Saucony has made certain that next time I’m in the shoe store, I’ll be tying them on first.

  45. Dorothy you look amazing! Love, love, love this campaign!

    This video is so awesome!!! So motivating! I especially like the end shot of you looking so tough. I thought of you always telling us to “find our strong” on Tuesday afternoon when I did my first speed workout (a 3 m tempo at 6:30 pace) on the track after being injured for 5 weeks this past winter/spring. I definitely found my strong! Thanks! :)

  55. Amazing!! You are fantastic! Especially at the end…that is awesome! Congratulations!!
