THE STORY:

This year will mark my 19th consecutive year of running the Boston Marathon.  However, it will be the first year I run with an insulin pump and the first time I have  the honor of running it as a member of the Joslin Diabetes Marathon team.  

Five years ago I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I was devastated - how could I have diabetes? I stayed in good shape, ate a healthy diet, and felt fine. I would learn that I have LADA ( latent autoimmune diabetes in adults).  Essentially it hit me later in life, but had nothing to do with staying healthy - my beta cells which produce insulin were dying and I no longer had the ability to produce the insulin I needed.  

At first I was able to manage it with pills (metformin) but like many diseases it is progressive; so eventually I needed to move to insulin injections. After a few years my need for  insulin continued to increase to the point where it made sense to go on a pump.  This past year I started wearing an omnipod insulin pump.  It is tubeless which has made it easier to exercise and enabled me to be free from being attached to a device.

This new way of life had been a challenge at first, however through the help of family, friends and the wonderful team at Joslin, I have been given the tools and support I need to live a normal life and continue to train for this roadrace in April. 

Please support me and my team as we try to give back to this wonderful Joslin community  and raise money and awareness about this brutal disesase.  My message is simple : We will find a cure for this disease, but we need your support and I ask for your generosity.   My teammates and I  will do our part:  keep training and raise awareness that even with diabetes, we can still make the most famous left turn in running onto Boylston Street and cross the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
