An inspirational story . . .

The other day, I received an interesting e-mail from Meyrick. He had come across my little blog, and he thought I might be interested in reading a post that his friend wrote about a duathlon they completed.

I've never considered myself much of an athlete, so I have the highest respect for those who work and train so hard and compete in events such as this. And I'm even more impressed by Meyrick's friend Harley. He's competed in several triathlons and in this duathlon he's posted about. But that's not the most impressive part. You see, Harley has been a Type 1 diabetic since the age of 16. And he's never let that stop him from competing. In fact, his day job? Director of physical education at West Point. Pretty cool!

Go on over and read all about his duathlon experience. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. It's a great example of how, although we may have to plan a lot more than the "average" person, we don't have to let T1 keep us from reaching our goals!
