I'm not the only one living with diabetes that likes to prove that a diabetic can do anything a person living without diabetes can do. Team Type 1 is built by diabetics that want to show they can do anything they put their mind to. While on Facebook earlier I came across a post from Team Type 1 that read
High blood sugars in temperatures over 100F nearly prevented Team Type 1's Sebastien Sasseville from completing Race Across The Sahara, but through resourcefulness and raw determination he pressed on to cross the finish line.
I then followed this link. I'm now in awe of Sebastien Sasseville, I want to complete the Race Across The Sahara one day. I feel my goals changing because of Sebastien and Team Type 1, they are far better athletes then I ever will be and they are showing me on a daily basis that anything is possible. They motivate me, when I'm sore on a run or bike ride I think of people like Sebastien, if he can race across the Sahara then I can certainly ride 200 miles or run a marathon.
