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 8

Start time: 5:15 am (I overslept! Ringer volume too low)
Finish time: 12:45 pm
Finish location: Monteagle, TN
Mileage: 22
Cumulative mileage: 274

Treasures: good sleep, great food and fun conversation with Peggy in Pelham (she gave me candy, cookie and water) in addition to making me breakfast, saw two mule deer bucks, feeling good today, figuring out some Addison's stuff, marijuana pipe found, going up a mountain (1000 vertical feet), eating a Popsicle before 7 am!! A Sonic hamburger with bacon on it. Heather offering to drive to Ocala to bring me Oreos and cookie dough.

I had a muscular pain in my right hip today. Nothing terrible just annoying. I took some ibuprofen and it feels better.

I hope to finish the race tomorrow. Slow but steady, that's me! I'm looking forward to going downhill and then back up to the finish.

Thanks to all of you for the emails, FaceBook messages, texts, phone calls and comments here. You guys are awesome!!!

You're doing so awesome! Although that pipe - was it full of product? Could be medicinal I guess ...
