I’ve been getting active, and I mean that in more than one way! Like I said before, since December I have been really wanting to get more active in the t1d community and take control over my diabetes. I’ve also been trying to be more physically active.
I am super excited in how active I have been in the t1d instagram community. I am starting to make new diabuddies and learn about opportunities and how others make it through this struggle called diabetes. I have been really trying to find type one diabetics in the Savannah area, but it’s kind of difficult when you don’t know where to start.
Luckily I follow a page called Diabetic Running Podcast where I learned about Type One Run, an organization who’s mission is “To improve and enrich the lives of all those touched by Type 1 diabetes through running and community engagement.” Let me tell you my excitement when I found out about this group! I did get a little discouraged at first when I found out there wasn’t a Savannah chapter yet. The thought crossed my mind to start one up myself, but I didn’t want to do the organization a disservice if I couldn’t be consistent. About a week or two later I see that there is a Savannah chapter! I joined their Facebook group and find out that they have a couch to 5k running program.
So hopefully I can find me some running diabuddies in my area! It would be nice to have someone who can relate on a personal level! The program begins tomorrow and is 6 weeks long. I will try my best to post weekly updates. Wish me luck as I try to be awesome lol. I also linked a photo of the program , the Facebook link for the program, as well as a little more information from the group below if any one wants to do it as well.
