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.

Spring is really here

Finally, the snow seems to have stopped down here in the Valley and the plants are growing as quickly as possible before winter arrives again.  Very white people are swamping the trails trying to get rid of their winter pallor, including me.  It's amazing how much my mood is improving because I'm outside, getting muddy, bloody, seeing animals and inadvertently eating bugs.

View of Teton Valley from the Big Hole Challenge loop.  I got to mountain bike for the first time in 1.5 years and then went for a short run!

I don't know what it is but its tummy was bright, bright green - Corral Creek

Lots of snow of the mountains beyond Corral Creek, dirt and mud on the 4 WD road

Just a sign

This is Red Creek.  I've never actually seen it run red, nor have I ever seen it uncrossable.  Usually you can hop rocks to get from one side to the other.  This trail crosses the creek about 10 times.  I think it will be a while before I can run it!

My current running companion on Aspen Trail.  She's always ready to go, enthusiastic and never tries to get me to reschedule.  I always have to drive though.

I couldn't get far on Pole Canyon trail unless I wanted to wade through water ( I didn't want to).   I decided to explore places that are obscured by trees later in the summer and found this old quarry.  It had a geocache in it.  Fun!

Pole Canyon, pretty
