Go ahead, get a kit and make sure you read the instructions, and get an air pump (there are quite a few people who like to get the $10 slime pump from Wal mart and take all the plastic bits off so they get pretty tiny) and go ahead and ride.

With any new tire repair, it is a good idea to check the tire pressure a few times for the first couple of days. It may lose a couple pounds while the string seats in but it should be stabilized after a day. If not, redo it IMHO.
