Today we’re going to share our most memorable diabetes day. You can take this anywhere…. your or your loved one’s diagnosis, a bad low, a bad high, a big success, any day that you’d like to share. (Thanks to Jasmine of Silver-Lined for this topic suggestion.)

There are so many memories to choose from!

I’m going to choose the day of my biggest athletic achievement yet – riding 102 miles for the ADA Tour de Cure last spring.

It was one of the hardest days of my life, complete with mechanical problems, self-doubt, stubborn determination and the willpower to just keep pushing forward.

There were many points where I wanted to quit, and maybe even a few moments where I felt like I could ride forever.

The thing I remember most about that day is wanting to quit but not letting myself go there. I think diabetes is like that sometimes. It seems too hard, it seems that I can’t do it anymore, but I don’t let myself go there.

I find a way to just keep going, one blood sugar test at a time.

  1. Aw that’s awesome you were able to do that, I’ve always wanted to do the Tour de cure! Although I couldn’t imagine sitting on a bike seat for 102 miles! 😛

  2. The only way to get anywhere is one step at a time. Good for you for pedaling your way to the finish line! That is no easy feat and a pretty daunting distance for any cyclist.
