Yesterday the Downtown Giants went 3 for 3 in our Champiship games. The hardwork, commitment and dedication my Pee Wee team showed during the season paid off in a 56 - 0 win in our Championship Game! I'm too excited, hung over and thrilled to give a full recap. Diabetes, blood sugar and triathlon are about the furthest thing from my mind right now. I can't put into words how amazing this feels and how proud I am of each and every one of my players - and yes the kids who ran with me made weight!
What a day!

Very cool, there's nothing like seeing victory through the eyes of kids to get your mind off daily diabetes management hassles!

I just got a vision in my head of the Rocky scene where he's running and the kids starting running with him to the top of the stairs where he starts jumping around.

I picture you doing that with the football trophy in your hand, LOL.

I'm sure the kids feel proud and happy.

That's so cool that all the kids who ran made the weight. Good on ya for teaching them about healthy weightloss and not having them eating only chicken and lettuce and sitting in a rubber suit inside a sauna for the past week.
JillRabbit would approve! :)

I am so, so, so, SO proud of you guys! Go downtown Giants! First you take Manhattan, then the world! :) Whoooo

and regarding your celebration, last night Mr. Ed, I am wondering if you even remember our conversation at 11pm? :)
