A few months ago Rachel Bennett, a journalism student at Rutgers and intern at the JDRF contacted me for an interview. The JDRF became aware of my attempt to become an Ironman 16 months after my T1 diagnosis through some work information sessions I had attended with their marketing department. When Rachel asked permission to write the article I couldn't refuse (watch out for my smile & overgrown head right now!)
So while I was going to tell you all about my 90 mile ride in the rain yesterday I'll hold that off for later this week and simply provide the link to the article. Some of the things, like my nutrition plan and hours of training have changed but the overall message remains the same: No matter what obstacles you face in life, if you believe in yourself, if your desire is strong enough, you will be able to accomplish what you set forth to do.
Here's the link to the article. Thanks again Rachel!!!
