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.

Robert Opel streaking at the 46th Academy Awards ceremony.

Did I get your attention?

I'm going to see how many days in a row I can do (walk/run/crawl) one mile a day and three pull ups each day.

Why? Cause I feel like it. My friend Colleen "streaked" last year, inspired me and now I'm ready to commit to my streak.

My streak started on November 18, 2009. I'm three days into my streaking!

Do you have a streak that you're going to do, if so, post it in the comments. I want to know what your streak is.

Awesome! I have streaked by waking up everyday for 15,906 days and counting! Woohoo!

PS: I love your blog too.

I streaked something like 70 days this summer leading up to wakely. It was fun, but I did it wrong.. basically did my minimum (1 mile) daily with a few long runs sprinkled around. Didn't even get 25 miles most weeks.

Steve, your one mile a day streak worked for GTR 50!!

Hey, I was looking at someone's pics from GTR 50 and there's a picture of you and I getting our picture taken before the race but from the back. I will post it on FB right now and tag you.

Dusty, I've had a lot of fun thinking about this, so thanks for posing the challenge! I'm going to walk for at least a mile, and do at least 20 situps every day for as long as I can. I have a 11,680 day streak of kissing my husband, and I'll also maintain that. :)

Fantastic Heather! Love the kissing your husband streak the best. I think I've got one going too. I'll have to think about that one. Will email soon. Have your VFPP button on my wall and the yellow note you wrote me. It keeps me smiling!!
