How to Run a Half Marathon With Type 1 Diabetes
Guest Blogger: Jacob Seltzer
My name is Jacob Seltzer, I am 20 years old, and a Type 1 Diabetic. I was diagnosed with diabetes on my half birthday, November 21, 2011 at the age of 15. I have had diabetes for roughly 5 years and I do not let it get in my way. I am currently going into my junior year of college at Stony Brook University as an athletic training major.
Recently, I decided to start up my own blog. My reasoning behind this was to spread awareness of the disease, better educate people, and most of all serve as a peer to help newly diagnosed diabetics cope with their disease. This blog, among so many
others online today, will have to serve us as we work together to find a cure for this disease.
I have also entered a contest from Runner’s World magazine, to be featured on the cover of the December issue!
