No excuses!

Have you ever encountered someone who has an excuse for everything?  Someone who always has an argument or justification for all of the things they can't do?  I encountered someone like this yesterday & it got me to thinking about why I don't make excuses.  More importantly why 3 day walkers don't make excuses.  The answer is simple.  3 day walkers simply expect more of themselves. 

As we lace up our shoes & step out to train each day we make a decision to put aside any excuses.  We choose not to listen people who say it can't be done.  We don't say that we're too tired even when we are.  We don't say that we're too busy even though we are.  We don't say our feet hurt even though they do.  We don't say that fund raising is too hard even though sometimes it is.  We simply say that we're honoring our commitment to ourselves & to others.  We say that we're willing to push ourselves to a place we weren't sure we could go to when we started.  We say that we're changing lives one step at a time.  We don't make excuses.
