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.

Training and Inspiration

Wanted to give thanks to those who constantly support me and listen to me when I tell them I'm going to do something dumb...again.

  • My husband, Paul, for everything and for putting up with me.  For not making me work so I could finish house projects and train for this (and Barkley) and for supporting me financially so I can eat and stay in a motel room while I'm doing this run.
  • Kim and Wanda for worrying about me and wanting to follow me to make sure I'm OK.
  • Bridget Lyons for having her yoga on line so I can keep doing yoga with her from 2,500 miles away and for getting me to love yoga in the first place.
  • Colleen W for getting me started streaking 2.5 years ago.
  • Steve Tursi for getting me to change my streak from walking a mile a day to running a mile a day.
  • Ashley for helping me love handstands and giving me excellent instruction as well as being very helpful with AI stuff.
  • Meara for her enthusiasm and for making me get my bikes in working order and for teaching me Turkish Get Ups.
  • Heather for being my tiara pusher and cheerleader.
  • Rich L for making me feel like a freaking Super Star.  Lora too.
  • All the people on AS Forum who cheer me on and who get out and do because I've inspired them.
  • A BIG THANK YOU to the gals at for their generosity and fantastic fun skirts and running clothes.
  • THANK YOU BOB at for socks that have changed my life and have made my feet happy for the last four years.
  • Jennifer and Jean, thanks for supporting me and letting me fund raise for AIU.
  • If I've forgotten anyone, I think of you often and thank you in my head.
Thanks to all for the support you've given me.

Dusty - I'm eagerly anticipating following you through as you complete this epic race. Good luck, and don't forget - have fun.

Dusty--We are SO grateful that you are doing this for AIU and for everyone with adrenal insufficiency. Your run and the associated publicity WILL save lives!

Lots of prayers for a safe & healthy run!!
