Then in September of 2011 I got Diagnose #4 : Type 2 Diabetes. What a devastating blow. I have worked so hard, and that is what I end up with. So I just stopped blogging. And really stopped living. I gave up. And that is not me. That is not who I am or what I am about.
So in early 2012, I said ENOUGH. (again, because I have my moment then I pick myself up by the boot straps and start again). So in July, I did my first mud run. From that moment, I was hooked. I will say, that by August of 2012, I was in complete remission of Type 2 Diabetes. Dr. M said the running was definitely helping, so don't stop what I am doing, even though I am still not losing weight (in fact I gain weight after each race).
Here are the races I did, since my last post, to present:
So as you can see, I have been working really hard to get healthy. But still... I just don't have that overall sense of feeling "normal". Maybe one day.
I will keep fighting! :)
