Day 4 of Diabetes Month Photo-a-Day is “Proud”. I think that people who live with diabetes (and our awesome Type 3-ers) have a lot to be proud of every day. This isn’t an easy disease to manage. We constantly have to juggle, do math, chase highs and lows, etc. It can be exhausting and every day is a victory!
But for the purpose of this Photo-a-Day entry, I want to share a picture of me after one of my training runs. I have completed two half marathons – The Virginia Beach Rock N Roll in September 2010 and the Flying Pirate (Outer Banks) in April 2011. Granted my times were pretty pathetic (Running is so not my thing) but I did it, managed my blood sugars along the way, and got the medals to prove it. I think this goes to show that even people who aren’t the best athletes can set a physical goal and achieve it. Thumbs up to you!
