This is a blog to describe how I deal with diabetes on my way to compete in the more extreme endurance activities like the Colorado Trail Race, the Tour Divide mountain bike races and other adventures.
I hope that you will learn a little about Type 1 Diabetes and that it doesn't have to hold you back.
I have had diabetes (Type 1) since 1994 when I was 27. I am married with two wee ones, Lila and Julian.
I like to ride my bicycle, ski and play as much as possible. Diabetes is huge in my family. I just hope we can find a cure so my kids never get it.
I don't like to dwell on having diabetes and let it overcome me. I don't use a pump but do use a Dexcom 7 continuous glucose meter for the last year.
