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.

Red Creek



There's something beautiful and peaceful about being alone in the woods. Today it never got warmer than 38 degrees in the sun. One good thing about the freezing cold temperatures was that if firmed the mud up, making it easier to run and walk on.

A section of Red Creek that's freezing over



A new bridge, steep hill and mud.




This is what Fall looks like, right before the snow flies (tomorrow!)




Oh yum, a drink on the side of the trail!



Winter is coming!

... A POWERFUL STORM SYSTEM HITS EASTERN IDAHO MONDAY AND TUESDAY...
ANOTHER STRONG FALL SYSTEM WILL IMPACT EASTERN IDAHO EARLY ON THIS WEEK. THIS SYSTEM WILL BRING LIGHT RAIN AND SNOW TO THE UPPER SNAKE HIGHLANDS LATE SUNDAY NIGHT AND INCREASE THROUGH MONDAY AFTERNOON. THE SYSTEM WILL DROP SOUTHWARD MONDAY NIGHT AND TUESDAY... BRINGING MUCH COLDER AIR BY TUESDAY TO ALL OF EASTERN IDAHO. SNOW LEVELS WILL PEAK AROUND 6000-7000 FEET AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT LATER MONDAY AND DROP TO THE VALLEY FLOORS TUESDAY MORNING. TOTAL SNOWFALL AMOUNTS OF 4 TO 10 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE ABOVE 7000 FEET... WITH LIGHTER AMOUNTS DOWN LOWER. THE SNAKE PLAIN AND EASTERN MAGIC VALLEY ARE FORECAST TO SEE 1 TO 4 INCHES OF SNOW. STRONG WEST TO NORTHWEST WINDS OF 15 TO 30 MPH... SLIGHTLY HIGHER IN THE MOUNTAINS... WILL ACCOMPANY THIS STORM. THIS COULD LEAD TO HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS IN SOME AREAS DUE TO BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW ALONG WITH REDUCED VISIBILITIES. THIS WILL MOST LIKELY BE A PROBLEM IN THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS. SNOW SHOWERS AND STRONGER WINDS WILL GRADUALLY DIMINISH LATER TUESDAY.
