Type 1 Ultra

endurance sports in the weird and wonderful world of type 1 diabetes

Type 1 diabetes never quits

I’m setting up this site with the intention that it will become a collection and selection of practical, useful, tried and tested links, shared experiences, and useful articles and features all relevant to the aspirational and possibly baffled type 1 diabetic (newly diagnosed or old school) looking for a way to get it done, endurance style. To that end, it should feature at some time in the near future a number of motivated type 1s and their own stories.

Marcus kindly made this short clip for me a few months ago when I presented to the Hypoactive AcT1vate conference in Victoria, alongside T1 legend and author Gary Scheiner. When I was first diagnosed in 2008, I began following Marcus’ quest for a Boston Marathon qualifier. His example was one of determination, common sense, and self-belief. I’m grateful that his blog Sweet Victory was part of my life at that time. He certainly inspired me and I hope his simple but clear message will inspire you too.
