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.

DNFed at Big Horn

Oh well, it was a good attempt. I didn't manage to finish the race. Got to halfway and had to quit due to extreme nausea. Legs felt good and head was in the game, the guts wouldn't cooperate. I ended up on the medical cot for a few hours getting warmed up and had to get some oxygen. We got back to our motel room at 7 am.

I slept most of yesterday and all of last night.

Today I feel fine. My legs aren't sore but my shoulders are!

I think my quest to finish 100 miles is over. I don't think I have the desire to feel that kind of nausea on an elective basis. I'm not sure if the nausea was from the Addison's, my physical make up or for some other reason but it was not good.

Many thanks to all of you who sent positive vibes, nice messages and prayers! It made me smile to think of you all. Thanks to my husband Paul who did a lot of behind the scenes work to make this attempt possible.

Pictures to come when I get home.

Nancy I didn't finish but I sure did want to!!!!!!!!! XXXOOO to you!!!!!
