I'm still in physical therapy but doing well. I injured my leg in college and had all of the cartilage removed ( they would never do that today). It wore down the bone and shortened my hamstring. I had actually lost an inch in height. Knee is really good- ham string stretching out is the harder part. But I did the 5k diabetes walk last week! I think in another month I'll be pretty close to 100%.

I have been sitting here facing my future with diabetes and although I was diagnosed in 2003 I know I have had it for a lot longer. Unfortunately I have a bad habit of trying to forget about it especially through 3 years of hard work in the gym I have finally come off my medication. I have now been accepted into the London Marathon in April next year and every training schedule I look at doesn't take into account the diabetes. I came across this website and found that several people had used Hal Higdon's website and said it was good. It was then that I realised I had come across a website with people that were here to look after themselves and share best practice. Not only do I need encouragement and motivation, after the death of my husband last year motivation can only come from me but I hope to help others who are working hard to improve their lifestyles as well.
