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.

Day 1 - Day 2 of Vol State

Day 1 start time: 7:38 am
Day 1 finish time: 8:30 pm
Official Mileage: 41
Unofficial (getting lost): about 50
Treasures: 60 cents, cool overcast day, Stu Gleman

Everyone is amazingly, incredibly nice! I was given water by 2 people, as I passed through neighborhoods people asked me questions and said, "Good luck!"

Day 2 start time: 3:30 am
Time now 8:30 am
In McKenzie taking shelter from the rain and putting my feet up. I pepper sprayed 2 dogs and then touched my inner arm to the nozzle. Owwwwiw. Got stopped by a cop because someone told him a "young girl" was walking down the road at 4 am! I ain't young! My arm is on fire. I'm feeling pretty good. Onward to Huntingdon, TN before noon!

Pip, I prefer to be invisible and hate running with a light. I only use the light when I have to. :) D

Terry, I wish you were here suffering too! This is my one and only VS!
