USA, I think?

Member Since:

Gender:

Female

Goal Type:

Boston Qualifier

Running Accomplishments:

I completed several marathons a few years ago...or was it a few marathons several years ago? 

Short-Term Running Goals:

Take my running streak one day at a time (It's the only constant in my life) While pursuing a Bachelor's degree in general psychology, after which, I will pursue a Master's degree in Psychology with dual specializations in clinical counseling and sex therapy. Lastly, to run my first marathon as a female. I hope to achieve all of there goals while I'm still a little sane :) or maybe I've already gone insane. Hmmmm. Something to think about.

Long-Term Running Goals:

To run every day for the rest of my life, If possible.

To continue running marathons, as a female, and with better finishing times compared to when I was running as a male.

The ultimate goal (fantasy):  Win a marathon as a transwoman, and not have the validity of the win be questioned or challenged by anyone, or delayed, pending further review, or have an * in front of my name...or after my name *.  In a perfect workd, right?  Right.

If such a scenario were to actually occur, by me or anyone else, and the win is indeed questioned or challenged, or pending further review, the best way to cope is to just ride it out with dignity, your head held high, a sense of humor, and move forward with your life.

Personal:

Some personal facts about me: I tend to do things much, much later than others would, such as going to school and having kids, realizing at age 47 that I'm a transgender woman. I began Hormone Replacement Therapy on Dec. 20, 2017. I used to be known as DaleG, but now I go by the name of Addison, but you can call me Addie.  True story.  Some people may be fine with this and others may not, but everyone is entitled to their own feelings. I merely want to live out the rest of my life the way I should have been all along, and that is to be happy.

I have one more year until I earn my Bachelor's degree in psychology, then it's on to a Master's degree in, most likely, Psychology with a dual specialization in Clinical Counseling and Sex Therapy.

One Year Running Streak Completed

*******************************************

~~Running Streak: ***365***   Days on HRT: 246

Sorry it took me such a long time to FINALLY post nearly one month of runs.  But hey, I did it!!!  I completed one full year of running at least one mile every day.  I have no plans to stop and I'll keep going as long as my body (or mind) will allow.  Bring on year number 2 of the running streak!!!

Thanks Coach and Rhett for checking in on me every now and then.  It's been a very busy, hectic, and exciting month for me.  Check out my post on August 6th.  It's a long read, but well worth it :)
