I feel very strong going in to my self made adventure. I'm concerned with getting to 1,100 miles but I'm more concerned with my blood sugars. I'm still a bit hesitant to race more because I'm still a bit worried about going low and having to pull out of a race. The next few weeks will either make me stronger or bring me back to the drawing board. My blood sugars have been amazing for the past week, everything seems to be clicking at the right time. Only time will tell how things go.
With my excitement for the real tour and my fake tour have me on YouTube a lot looking at old tour videos and videos of my cycling crush Lance Armstrong. I went back to an old favorite for motivation, the video below is about cancer and the struggle. The commercial fits for diabetes as well, getting up the mountain and getting the disease under control and accepting is a very tough fight. But as you embrace your disease and the fight, you begin to enjoy life and see the good in a chronic disease. I hope the video below motivates others as much as it has motivated me.
