I have been an athlete all of my life. I developed diabetes when I was a high school fottball player but that didn't bother me that much. Just had to get things under control and continue what I loved to do most and that was working out. I found that my love exercise was something that others with diabetes did not have and that the exercise was very good for people who have diabetes. So I have turned myself into an example, a role model, for others who have diabetes. It has really been terrific for those I have inspired. I will continue my athletics, diabetes or not. I just want to bring as many people along with me as I can in this endurance way of life. What a joy it is to really fly under your own power.
