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.

It's official. Allison, my friend and workout/running partner of the last 12 years, has taken a job in Boise, Idaho. Boise is 6.5 hours away so I'll rarely see her let alone have her as a workout buddy. I'm looking for a new workout partner. Email me at or call me (my number's in the Teton Valley book) if you know someone or you fit the description below.

Here's the job description:
