It is that time of year again!
Last year, I raised money for the Joslin Diabetes Center and ran the Boston Marathon. Both turned out to be extremely special experiences in my life. So much so that I am geared up to do it again...
My good friend, Claire Clendenen has lived with Type 1 diabetes for 5 years now. She is currently a senior at Wellesley High School, and not a day goes by where she isn't focused on or aware of insulin. Type 1 diabetes can't be prevented or managed by diet, exercise or oral medications. Claire must give constant attention to her meals, lifestyle and medications. Not an easy task for a 17 year old. Claire is going to be my patient partner again as we take this disease head on. I feel strongly about this organization and have committed myself to not only getting into top running form, but to raise as much money as I can for diabetes research. Any donation is welcome and helpful.
