Hashi marathoner. Any other runners out there?

Im beginning to feel a bit more normal, hives held in check with some zytrec, although weight has not come off. Thats okay. Ive got time!
Im 52...other than the tiny dose of levothyroxine, all I've done is cut back on the running, and gave up gluten. I love the fact that I sleep for more than 5 hours a night. 8-10 hours...a total luxury! Love it!

I'm not a marathoner but I am a runner. The best thing I did was to do as much as I could (in terms of exercise) so my meds were dialed in correctly. The more you do, the more meds you need.
What do your labs look like and when do you go back for repeat testing?
Total Thyroidectomy 8/29/11
TSH 71.17 on 9/14/11
RAI 100mci 9/23/11
Starting point for replacement meds: 50 mcgs of Synthroid, TSH 121.88 on 11/8/11; 100 mcgs of Synthroid, TSH 43.21 on 12/9/11; 137 mcgs of Synthroid, TSH 7.88 on 1/11/12; TSH 8.38 on 2/9/12, 150 mcgs of Synthroid, TSH 2.81 on 3/27/12, TSH 0.54 on 5/8/12, TSH 0.78 on 8/8/12, TSH 0.39 on 12/20/12, TSH 0.24 on 3/5/13, TSH 0.33 on 4/15/14, TSH .12 on 3/10/15, TSH 0.21 on 9/15/2016, TSH .12 on 2/17/17.

No marathons but worked in large scale construction.
Sort of a mini marathon every day.
Very fast paced extremely physical work till my 50's when thyroid problems came to be.
I'm a lot better on thyroid hormone and I thank my stars for that but We'll never be the same again.
Still in construction but not as physical or fast paced anymore.
Don't let thyroid disease stop you from what you like to do.............
