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.

Big Hole Crest Trail: snow and mud!

The view for most of the "run"

Paul and I ran, scrambled, slipped and pondered the Big Hole Crest Trail on Sunday. It was warm, snowy and muddy. We started out in the South Fork of Horseshoe and came out at Corral Creek. Because of all of the snow and a missed turn, we had a detour down a really hot canyon (twice!). I took 5 mg of HC/hour and used salt pills. I skipped my 11 am and 2 pm HC doses opting for taking a little HC at a time.

Paul, pondering one of the many huge mud pits

Lots of blowdown at the Horseshoe end of the trail

More blowdown

It's summer and there's still LOTS of snow


Part of the trail, it went up and over the highest point of that hill

One of many, many snow fields

Look in the middle of the picture and you can see a trail going STRAIGHT up the hill to the highest, farthest away point. We had to come down that to find the trail that we should have been on. When we reached this gate, all of the trail markers were laying on the ground, broken from a winter of deep snow
