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.

Running streak: 338 days

Days on HRT: 219

So, looking at the calendar, my 365th consecutive day of running will be on August 22nd! I will run 36.5 miles that day. JK. I will run 3.65. Hehe :)

The other day I signed up to volunteer at the Loveloud Festival this coming Saturday trust Rice-Eccles stadium at the University of Utah. I will be volunteering from noon until most likely, 2 or 3 am. I'm super excited. Not only do we volunteer, but we get to match the concerts as well. Imagine Dragons is the headliner. The first act takes the stage at 3 pm.

Today I was asked by the director of the foundation if I could come help set up for the press conference on Friday so I said I would be glad to. I came to work for a couple of hours, drove down to Salt Lake, spent a few hours with a group of 8 amazing people. We got it all set up and then I drove back to Ogden and went back to work. Fun times. Everyone was super nice to me and giving me hugs and saying look beautiful. I'm very humble, but it was nice hearing such nice things and I love hugs. I'll take a hug anytime!!!

Atta-girl Addie, just a few more days to claim running everyday for a year! I haven't even done that!

Thanks Coach! I'm almost there :) it'll be a huge milestone for me. Running every day has been the only constant in my life for the past (almost) year. I look forward to seeing how long I can go. I love it!!!
