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.

Finishing what I started and pictures that have nothing to do with it...

There are two kinds of people, those who finish what they start and so on.

Some of you might remember that I went down to Texas with the intent of finishing Rocky Raccoon 100 mile race.  I didn't finish and only got to 57 miles, crying and whining.  My husband picked me up and I said I was done and would never try to do another 100 mile race.  By the time we had reached the hotel, about 20 minutes later, I had figured out about one hundred things I could have done differently.  I would try another 100 miler in the future!

With Antelope Island 50 miler and Pocatello 50 miler under my belt, I've decided to upgrade from the Big Horn 50 to 100 mile.  Please understand, I am not "racing".  I am attempting to finish and once again, finish without crying (too much) or hallucinating (too much) and under the cutoff which is 34 hours.  I'm still working out the details...

Here are some pictures from the last week or so.

Paul on Aspen Trail, about to run Targhee over.  No worries, Targhee got up at the last minute.

Allison's favorite tree got cut down on Cold Springs, it was huge and old.  Anyone want to count the rings?

I must admit I often start out huge projects with big ideas and plans and so on, and then not finish them. Perhaps I should start finishing some of the things I've already started...

Oh, and good luck with finishing your race :)
