Ninjabetic Weekend – Saturday – The Walk

After a crazy California evening, and a few hours of sleep, the Simmons family and I were on the road headed to the Team Ninjabetic 2010 JDRF Walk for a Cure!

Team Ninjabetic was the largest family team, and even beat the corporate sponsor (Coca-Cola/Coke Zero) by over 20 walkers.  We represented big time.  We all had awesome Ninjabetic t-shirts, generously donated by Pelagic.  It was really something special to see so many Ninjabetic t-shirts overtaking the area.

The weather was hot, and the terrain was rough.  Almost desert-like in some areas.  There were at least two signs advertising a water station, but no water or volunteers to be found.  It didn’t take long for me to get supremely sunburned.  I swear the sun shines brighter in California.

I love this picture of the team.  George is in the middle, completely surrounded by everyone that came to support him (and by extension, all of us living with type 1 diabetes).
