..."my knee is really bad"...., ..." I won't be in the country in April"....., etc. A couple of the Marathon excuses I've heard this week. Really people, it's okay - nobody has to do the Marathon with me - I'm more than happy to do it by myself - well obviously not really by myself as there will be another 15,000 people running on the day, but you know what I mean.
Why is it that when you decided to do something worthwhile, everyone assumes that you expect them to be doing it too, and they must think of an excuse - quickly - as to why they can't?
I don't expect anyone to do what I do, so - everyone else is off the hook. Huge sigh of relief all round !
