The road I took to get to this point in my life is one that I wouldn't wish for anyone. The ups and downs, being in a place where I could've lost my life to being in a new life and a new person is crazy. As I face new challenges in my life the one constant has been a cycling team that is living with diabetes. Now because of people believing in me and loving my passion for life and me they have given me the confidence to chase my dreams.
Just walking down the halls of the hotel and meeting team members has been great. Not to mention running into the man that saved my life and taught me that anything is possible with diabetes. This weekend is one that I have dreamed of for years and I still can't believe that I'm here!! I haven't stopped smiling and I've only been here for a couple hours. The weekend ahead will be amazing but not just for me, my hope is to share my experience and hopefully show a little boy or girl that is having a tough time with their diabetes that anything is possible. That's what Team Novo Nordisk has done for me and I'm honored to be able to say thank you to them in person.
