For someone who’s always thought of themselves as “not a runner”, I’ve done a surprising amount of events over the past few years. In 2013, I finally decided that I didn’t want to let diabetes be the reason that I didn’t do the things that scared me, so I made a resolution to run 2013km that year. I’ve never looked back. I’ve run everything from 5km to ultramarathons. I’m not the fastest, and never will be. I love running, even when I’m hating it. Looking for other diabadasses in Brisbane to show the world that diabetes can’t hold anyone back - so if you love (or hate) running, or want to get started, or just want to hang out with other type 1’s come along and join me!
Sean is one of the nicest guys you'll meet. He's an engineer and is into trail running - he's done the Angeles Crest 100 miler - but is happy running easy with us mere mortals as well.
Sean founded and leads the Bay Area running group in San Jose.
He's also a Diabetes Sports Project Champion.
I'm 46 years old, married and a father of two (an 11 year old son and 6 year old daughter), and we're living as a family in Hamburg, Germany.
My type 1 showed up 16 years ago during my final exam at university (a really bad moment in time) where I studied economics and sociology.
In my younger days I played water polo and later I did Karate for years. Ever since I can imagine I rode my bike, because I prefer riding my bike to driving. And this is still the case.
With running I started ca 4 years ago and my favourite distance is between 5k and 10k. There are a lot of running events across Hamburg and I'll join some of them. Biggest challenges this year are a 16k around Hamburg Airport (in Sep-17) and two 12k bridge runs one in Hamburg and one in Stralsund (Eastern Germany). Both bridges are cars-only bridges and absolutely forbidden for pedestrians, except for the running events.

The total number of marathons I've ran so far is 75. I'm a member of the Marathon Maniacs club, member #361.
Back in 1974 I was a high school sophomore running with the JV Cross Country team. I had done OK as a freshman, but I was not improving with training that season, I was falling farther and farther behind, getting lost on long runs, losing lots of weight, having to pee all the time, you know...
Finally, my mom took me to the doctor. When he immediately had a diagnosis, I was happy that he knew what was wrong with me. I didn't know what diabetes was.
But my mom started crying.
Anyway, after they told me it was a lifetime thing, and I spent a few days in the hospital learning how to survive with it, they let me keep running.

Hey! I’m Emma, a 33 year old who’s had type 1 diabetes for over 26 years (although that’s not generally how I would introduce myself to a stranger haha). I’m not sure if growing up with the condition has pushed me to do more things or if I’d have done them anyway. I do know that it hasn’t stopped me taking part or challenging myself to achieve my goals, whether that be a tough mudder or a week of partying in Vegas, a marathon or a sky dive, I have pushed myself to the limits. More recently this year I started running and have now completed 2 of the marathon majors in both Berlin and London. Not only has running helped me get fitter, it is also a great team sport and I have met so many amazing people in the last 12 months. I’m excited about setting up this group and hopefully helping and sharing ideas with other likeminded people. :)
Kære alle løbeglade type 1er,
Jeg har selv haft t1d i 27 år og løbet ca lige så længe. Har deltaget i løb, 5 km til halvmarathon distance. Tidligere har jeg dyrket atletik og har således en del erfaring med løbetræning. Løbning er rigtig godt for midt blodsukker, hvorfor jeg tænker det også er det for andre. Dog er der nogen ekstra udfordringer som løbende diabetiker, som kan være rart at vende med andre og også underletter at løbe sammen med andre det kender til problemstillinger med svingende blodsukker og øget kulhydratbehov ved fysisk aktivitet.
Denne gruppe er for alle med diabetes type 1 som kan lide at løbe eller måske lige fået lyst at prøve kræfter med det. Det er plads for alle i alle niveauer, og der afstemmes fra gang til gang alt efter fremmøde, og løbere deles eventuelt op i flere grupper hvis det passer bedst. Der satses på et løb ca hver 14. dag. Enten til hygge eller til forfølgelse af mål, alt efter hvad det kunne være
It would be so fun if there were some T1Ds here in Denmark for a Danish chapter.
I’m Sara and I’m the kind of person always bringing a pair of running shoes for holiday, work trips, weekends or whatever, because there just might be an opportunity to go running. When I was younger I practiced athletics on a higher level but today I just run because I love running. As a bonus it helps keeping blood sugar stable àwinwin! On the picture I am participating in my first half marathon this spring. I have had type 1 diabetes since I was 5 years old, celebrating my 27nd “diaversary” this month.
I am a medical doctor, training to become an endocrinologist in the coming years, so I could put some information in the waiting rooms at the hospitals. I live in Odense, the third biggest city in Denmark and work in Svendborg, 30 minutes south of Odense.
I would love to meet other Chicago area t1d runners!
This is a picture of me earlier this year in October when I completed my 9th half marathon, my 8th as a diabetic. I run 5ks and half marathons, as well as just running for health and for my sanity. Currently I'm waiting to see if I got a lottery spot for the Chicago Marathon (because it would be my first full marathon I did not have a qualifying time so you have to enter a lottery draw). I will find out if I got in on December 12, if I don't then I will be looking for races next year. I have also done the Naperville Half Marathon for the past 3 years, so I plan on doing that this year again as well.
I was diagnosed in January of 1989 at age 18. I joined the cross country team that spring to help control blood sugar and really never stopped. I have run 3 ultras 6 halfs and 1 full marathon and many distances in between. Running not only keeps my readings better but also keeps me positive.

I run pretty slow but enjoy finding zen through running trails and mountains. Love to come back from a long hilly run newly equipped with an excuse to engorge on carbs.
