Absolutely let me know, but I know you won't have a problem.
What I do towards the end of a run that I really don't want to keep running, I just think about what a bummer it would be to get home and have to tell my husband and my friends that I didn't finish. Try it!! Even if you're slow and feel gross, just keep convincing yourself to go for another 15 seconds. And another 15 seconds. And how much you don't want THIS to be the run you don't finish. It's given me the motivation to keep going when I really don't want to a bunch of times.
Good luck!! I know you'll do fine.
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
