Blog changes

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.

2008 plans for this blog:
  1. I'm going to post an Addison's disease specific topic every Wednesday. It will be factual (as opposed to opinion) in nature. I will provide as many references as possible. I encourage anyone who is reading this to suggest topics and to comment on my posts. If you have information that you'd like provide on a specific topic, I'd love to post it for you if you're not able or comfortable doing it yourself
  2. Document my training through pictures
  3. Provide inspiration and information to others with Addison's disease
2008 plans for me:
  1. Stay healthy through regular, well planned exercise, research and good eating habits
  2. Obtain sponsorship to make it possible for me to continue to stretch my limits. I'm not really good but I finish and I have a good attitude!! If you know higher ups at Columbia (Mountain Hardware division), Cloudveil, ASICS, Merck or Danskin who would be interested in sponsoring me, for a resume.
  3. Run from Teton Canyon to Grand Targhee ski area every month in 2008
  4. Do the following races
    1. Run the Desert Rats 50 mile race in April 2008
    2. Run the Grand Teton Races 100 miler in August 2008
    3. Ride the 24 hours of Targhee solo in September (mountain biking)
    4. Do an endurance mountain bike race in November of 2008 with my husband
