This is Doug

Douglas Scalia, official badass, five times over

This is my friend Doug. He’s pretty cool. He has type 1 diabetes, just like me. :-)

He decided he was going to run a marathon. In February of 2011, he couldn’t run 0.25 miles, and in October of 2011 he completed the Twin Cities Marathon.

He’s done four more since then.

Doug (and a handful of others) spoke at a local JDRF Adults with Type One group tonight about exercising with diabetes, and it was really great.

But my favorite part of the whole evening was looking over to see Doug wearing all five of his marathon medals.
