Today in the mail, I got a cycling jersey from JDRF. This excites me because this is the sort of top I wear in the mountain runs I do. I really don't like to advertise for a lot of companies, just those whose products I use and/or really appreciate. This way, I am putting Juveniles Diabetes right out there.
I have been in touch with a pro cycling team called Team Type 1. They are relatively knew and are working to " instill hope and inspiration for people around the world affected by diabetes; through active management, one can achieve their goals, dreams, and potential." I hope to have a representative from the team come and talk to the kids at Park Forest Middle School. I think that having someone with experience managing type 1, especially while maintaining a serious exercise program would be really helpful to kids and adults alike. I hope it works out.
Great workouts today. This morning I only ran a couple of miles, but did some plyometrics. This afternoon I played capture the flag for a couple of hours with kids at school. I think this counts as speedwork. I think Friday I will be playing basketball with a crew again. This is definitely a different pace than I am used to moving. It helps loads throughout the year.
Enough for now. Homework time.
