Tell us more about you (optional)
I am a teacher in transition from Phoenix, AZ to Jersey City, NJ. I have been a type 1 diabetic now for 14 years, and have had my ups and downs with it. This year I began pump therapy and it has changed my life! I am more motivated to be in control through diet and exercise. And I have a goal of running a full marathon to mark my 15 years of living with diabetes in 2013.
