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.

9 times in 9 months and some turkeys

Yep, by the skin of my teeth I've run from Teton Canyon to the base of Grand Targhee at least once a month for the last nine months (a 2008 goal). I did it yesterday on September 30th. I was tired and walked a lot but I did it anyway. I think I fell asleep before 9 pm. I don't think I took extra hydrocortisone and I think I really needed it! My whole body is a little achy today so I upped my HC by 5 mg, 10 probably would have been more appropriate.

I'm really glad I did the run/walk even though all I had energy for was the road (11.4 miles as opposed to 12 - 14 on the trail or the Grand Teton Races loop). I didn't find one darned treasure or money along the way but it was a gorgeous run. Pictures below.


I don't currently have any goals and I 'm working on them. I'll definitely get into the gym tomorrow and lift because I'm doing it BEFORE I go to work!


Enjoy!



The Grand Teton and some aspens, they looked that bright in real life!

At work today the turkeys invaded the deck. Look at Mr. Nosey in the right hand corner, he kept poking his head back and forth, watching me.
