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.

Early morning workout

Ok, so it was 6:30 not early by some standards. Early by my standards!

Allison and I ran on the bike path and lifted weights on the bridge this morning. I've been subbing at the Middle School this whole week so we had to run and lift early. I'm feeling absolutely crappy. 2 migraines earlier this week and now I feel like I'm coming down with a cold. I'll shut up now!

6:35 am and the full moon is in the background

Allison and Dusty's workout show on the bike path bridge. It was 36 degrees when we were done. Winter approaches fast. The high mountains have a dusting of snow.


The full moon setting over the Big Holes at about 6:45 am.

Sun rising behind the Grand Teton 7:30 am

Horseshoe Canyon two weekends in a row & Allison's new shoes and socks

An old stove, remains of the old mining communities that existed in Horseshoe Canyon

Allison and Paul at the start line of their race last weekend. Paul did the 10 K+ and came in 3rd, Allison did the 20 K+ and finished 8th. Well done!!! Zane and I cheered and took pictures.

The awesome view of the Tetons from Horseshoe Canyon

Some tall trees by Sam (an old mining town in Horseshoe Canyon). Colleen and I were up here yesterday.

Allison got new running shoes! She's wearing her iridescent new socks too!

Sad story

If you have kids who play football or wrestle, please take the time to watch this 8 minute video created by the New York Times. Better yet, get your kid to watch it with you. The video is about a local young man, Kort Breckenridge, who played football for Teton High School and got a permanent, debilitating head injury. It's sad so get your tissues out. His situation and the situation of 62 other young men with head injuries in the last couple of years is a good reason to encourage our kids to run instead of doing sports where their heads are used as battering rams.
