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.

Addison's: Marathon Metaphor

"It is a paradoxical but profoundly true and important principle of life that the most likely way to reach a goal is to be aiming not at that goal itself but at some more ambitious goal beyond it."
- Arnold Toynbee
We've all got things we want to do with our lives. Because of Addison's disease, many of us are not able to do things that we want to do as fast or as often or as consistently as we'd like to. Addison's can definitely slow us down. I enjoy doing many things and as an Addisonian, I'm known for doing things that are out of the ordinary. We all do things that are out of the ordinary and want to do amazing things. I want to do endurance exercise. You've got your own "marathon". The only way to achieve our final goal is announce your intentions, research and set your goals.

What's your "marathon"? Writing a book? Getting back to normal health? Touring the world? Reading a book series? Helping others? Losing weight? Decreasing your hydrocortisone?

From here on out, please see my running as a metaphor for the things you want to achieve in life. I hope you can get inspiration from the things I do and see and share with you. Addison's makes doing what we do more of a challenge but never see it as a deterrent from your goals and dreams.
