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.

Join us in supporting Dusty’s 500K Race Across Tennessee for Adrenal Insufficiency Awareness July 12-21, 2012

I'm proud and excited to partner with Adrenal Insufficiency United in raising funds to send AIU representatives to the Fire-Rescue International conference where they will educate Fire and Rescue personnel on how to handle and Addisonian crisis.

Over the next six weeks, I will try to post as much as possible to raise awareness of adrenal insufficiency, how to train in heat and how things are going!  Also, I want you to know that not one penny of this race is going to me.  My husband is paying for all of my gear, travel expenses, food and hotel rooms.  We've also donated to AIU as well.

Proceeds will enable representatives from 
Adrenal Insufficiency United
to attend the
(and other AI awareness conferences)

The awareness about HOW to treat,
and the MEDICATION to treat an adrenal crisis
is not readily available to all emergency medical personnel. 
AIU’s goal is to change that--and we need your help!

Dusty Hardman, a runner who also happens to be adrenal insufficient,
is joining with Adrenal Insufficiency United (AIU) to promote awareness
of this under-recognized, but very treatable disease.
Dusty will be running 7-9 days--over 300 miles!--in the
“Last Annual Vol-State Road Race.”

Adrenal Insufficiency United--Bridging the gap between health professionals and those living with Adrenal Insufficiency through awareness, support, collaboration and research.

Dusty, thank you so much for what you are doing. My young son has had three adrenal crises, and now has epilepsy which was most likely caused by a brain injury suffered during the first crisis. He just got out of the hospital today after a week of testing related to his epilepsy.
