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.

Busy July. Only 45 snow free days left.

Damn, once the weather warms up here there is so much to do and so many places to go. It's nearly impossible to keep up!

Instead of typing things, here are some pictures and brief captions.

Logging operations at the top of Lightening Ridge. Paul and I went out and ran part of the Grand Teton Races course on Sunday. It was Paul's longest run, 18.5 miles. He did great.

Me pretending to touch the electric fence on Mill Creek. This is a spoof on M's faux pas during the ultrarunning camp. Silly M, you don't touch an electric fence!

Coming up the Targhee road with the Tetons in the background.

Yep, we're rebels, we went right through this fence!

Me sweaty and resting after Sunday's run. It's the 7th time in 7 months that I have run from Targhee to Teton Canyon and back. Through the winter I was on the road. Luckily in the summer, I can hit the trails. I hate being on the road.

This is why I live here. Beautiful!

This is not why I live here. 7:30 in the morning in midJuly. 37 degrees is ridiculous! It got down to 31 degrees and ruined my string bean plants!!!!!!!!!!

Lisa Smith-Batchen (red shirt, black skirt) and her crew are amazing. Lisa ran from Las Vegas, Nevada, rested for 24 hours, ran the Badwater ultramarathon and then is summiting Mount Whitney. All in 5 days!!! She's amazing and has raised $300,000 for AIDS orphans in Africa. Does she look like she just ran 302 miles?!?!?! Lisa lives in Driggs.

The wild flowers are perfect right now. Indian paintbrush above.

I had to run/walk up this to get to the good stuff on Wednesday. Pole Canyon's power line road.

Me being a dork and trying to get a picture of myself jumping. It didn't work.

Only in Idaho would someone put the irrigation line over a dirt pile!

Allison has returned to town (thank goodness!) and we hiked up Table Mountain yesterday. Gorgeous girl with a gorgeous background.

Me and Allison acting goofy on the top of Table Mountain. The Grand Teton is to our left and the South is to our right.

Later yesterday evening, we went to my friend's house. Her dad's tractor is equipped to safely carry a baby (see the car seat?)! Good thing, he loves Pa and the tractor!!
