Seven years later and I'm still on the bike and have picked up running. It took me almost twenty-six years to learn but if you want see change or do well at something you have to work. You don't just do the basics, you have to be fully committed. When you're tired or would rather nap or sit on the beach that is when you need to train. My lifestyle now is one that is a very active lifestyle, I need to be doing something. I often over do it but I love that tired feeling at the end of the day, feeling tired tells me that I did something with my day. When you put the time and effort in it is very tough to have a bad day.
It is amazing what life gives us, it challenges us and the challenge is tough. If you accept the challenge you will see amazing things. I often get mad that I didn't accept the challenge that diabetes gave me when I was younger, who knows where I would be, I'd like to think that I'd be on one of the Team Novo Nordisk teams but I'm just happy that I can still dream and work my butt off to be the best athlete and person I can be while living with diabetes.
