No Excuses!

I have a race tomorrow. Here's a list of some of the reasons why I shouldn't do the race.
  • My friend bailed and is no longer doing it with me.
  • It's hot.
  • My husband has said to me that I don't have to do the race if I don't want to. Translation - he won't be mad if I just skip it and the registration fee is forfeited.
  • It's really hot.
  • My back is still sore.
Now for the reasons why I should do the race:
  • While my friend isn't going, we weren't going to be together once the race starts anyway. Bottom line: this is just an excuse. I need to get over it.
  • It's hot. Sure it's hot, but it's not as hot as later in the day and I have been doing bootcamps in this heat the entire summer. A 5K is much easier than a bootcamp for me. Bottom line: this is just an excuse. I need to get over it.
  • Married life has been a huge adjustment for both me and my husband, but we have both been putting in a lot of effort. That effort though has paid off ten fold. He's my biggest fan and supporter. Bottom line: this is very supportive of my husband, but I can't use it as an excuse. I need to get over it. 
  • While my back is sore, it's doing much better. Plus, it doesn't hurt when I jog. Bottom line. This is just an excuse.I won't be hitting my 27 min pace and need to take it easy ignoring my pace (plus it's hot!) and I just need to get over it.  
  • I am a racing shirt phobia person. I won't be able to wear the shirt if I don't do the race. 
Bottom line: No excuses. I'm over it and I will be doing the race. Suck it up buttercup!

You are such an inspiration! There are lots of excuses that I need to "get over", and I plan to. That's why I start boot camp on Monday! Yay!

As for sitting for my conceal carry permit, I have not done it yet. I am hoping to start going an getting familiar with a weapon again (I haven't shot anything in a few years) in the next week or so. I'm not in a rush to get my permit, I'll do it when I feel I am ready. But definitely before November, which is my anniversary, and when my husband is buying me my own handgun, and I want to be licensed by then.

So very proud of you for making the decision to do it! Like Beth Ann said, it's uncanny how similar your two posts were!
