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. This may change, as I've begun considering med school. Lastly, I plan to run my first marathon as a female at the 2019 St. George Marathon. On January 1st, 2019, I will begin my training plan, while continuing my running streak, barring any unforseen incidents that prevent me from doing so. Knock on wood.

Long-Term Running Goals:

I would like to run every day for the rest of my life, but I already know that I'll have to start over at some point in the future. But I'm ok with that. :)

To continue running marathons, as a female, and with better finishing times compared to when I was running as a female disguised 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 world, right?  Right.

If such a scenario were to actually occur, by me, which is highly unlikely, 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.


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 and opinions, as long as they don't say anything hurtful to me or anyone else. 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.

Did you let it all hang out?

As a matter of fact, I did. Funny, because I was thinking of that song when I wrote that. Haha. :)

Oh yeah, and I shook my tambourine, as well. Can't forget about that.

Good to see you are still going strong on your streak. Doing it after midnight sounds cold up there though.

Merry Christmas.

Merry somewhat late Christmas Addie. Good to see your streak is running strong! What are your plans for 2019 other than running St George?
