When we think about inspiring stories within OCR, we often think about wounded veterans, amputees, or wheelchairs making it through the course. What we don't see or think about often are those with an underlying condition that makes it difficult to make it through the course. Today we highlight the Diabetes Sports Project Foundation and their new Project More Unstoppable Diabetics program.
I don’t let diabetes stop me from doing things, I never have and I never will. It is just an extra obstacle that I have to face. Over the couple of years I have been doing OCRs I have helped a number of other people with diabetes learn how they can do these events or any other event. I don’t hide the fact that I have diabetes, in fact I will tell it to anyone who asks, ‘Why are you running with that pack?’ or ‘What are you doing?’ when I stop and a water station and start pulling things out of my pack.
