I have been on cloud nine since I received that email. I have done a lot reflecting, it amazes me that I'm doing what I'm doing today. It amazes me that with the help of my amazing wife, family and friends I'm now realizing my dreams. As a child I always dreamed of having a job that had something to do with sports, this blog is not a job but it is something that I love to do day in and day out. It has allowed me to meet amazing people and has allowed me to help so many that want to start exercising with diabetes. I don't receive any pay for anything that I do on this website or any interviews that I conduct, diabetes is my life and I have made it my "job" to help people that are living with diabetes. This blog started as a way to talk about my everyday life as an athlete with diabetes, I never imagined it would get to where it is today.
With that said, I would not be able to interview Sebastien if it weren't for you. Followers of this blog have made it what it is today, I want to give you the reader the opportunity to ask six time ironman, the first Canadian with diabetes to reach the summit of Mt. Everest, and the first diabetic to run across Canada any question you want about being an endurance athlete with diabetes. The questions can cover every and all subjects when it comes to endurance events and diabetes. Personally I want to know how he got where he is today, I love marathons but how do you take that next step, how do you go from a marathoner to ultramarathoner? I would also love to know how to become an ironman, what does it take to do an ironman as a diabetic?
Please send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org please use "Seb Question" as the title of the email. All questions must be submitted before 12AM EST on January 4th 2015!! At that time I will choose ten questions. I will make sure that the providers of the questions I use get a little something, be it a t-shirt or mug. The interview with Sebastien Sasseville will be conducted the following week.
