Forgotten Nike Ad: This is a Picture of a 40-Year Old Woman

In my quest for finding old Nike ads I found this extremely awesome one. I figure that by the copy style it was written around the same time as the "A Woman is Often Measured" ad, which was published in 1994 when I was 24.

In reading this ad, now that I am 42, I realize that when I first read it in my 20s it did not have the significance that it now has. I share this wonderful ad with you now. I know so many women will be able to relate.

It reminds me of what my mom told me when she was in her '60s. She said that inside she still felt like a 16 year old girl. We may be in our 50s, 40s, or 30s now, but we are "just beginning to go."
