This schedule is not complete and is subject to change for any reason I see fit.  This is to include reasons such as; because I was lazy and didn't want to do it, because I changed my mind and wanted to do a different event, because the weather was not up to par with my preferences, my children decided to insert something into my schedule, my dog ate my running shoes, etc.  The list of excuses can go on and on.  I accept "donations" of valid or invalid excuses.  Please feel free to leave your suggestions of best excuses  for not completing an event.
