Newly diagnosed? Start here!

I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when I was 29 years old, somewhat late in life compared to many who were diagnosed as children. Because I was diagnosed later on, I can clearly remember a time in my life when I wasn’t diabetic and how different my life was back then. Similarly, I can also remember a time when I hated running and dreaded working out. Maybe you’re at a similar point in your journey and don’t feel like an “athlete”. In all honesty, some days I still dread working out but I’m always thankful I finished, once I complete the workout. If you’re just getting started, don’t worry about where you’re at now, just keep at it and eventually, you’ll achieve your goals.

I wasn't always a runner
