Thanks to everyone who followed Training Because I Can! over the last nine years. This blog started with Addison's Disease, hypothyroidism and a crazy idea of doing an Ironman distance triathlon. My life has changed and so has this blog. I am using this blog strictly for Addison's Support topics from here on out. I hope to continue providing people with hints for living life well with adrenal insufficiency.

If you have kids who play football or wrestle, please take the time to watch this 8 minute video created by the New York Times. Better yet, get your kid to watch it with you. The video is about a local young man, Kort Breckenridge, who played football for Teton High School and got a permanent, debilitating head injury. It's sad so get your tissues out. His situation and the situation of 62 other young men with head injuries in the last couple of years is a good reason to encourage our kids to run instead of doing sports where their heads are used as battering rams.
