It's me, Melinda from Camp Wild. Was just wandering around Tu diabetes and found you. How are you? Hope things are good. Camp has really changed me. my attitude and how I work out. Have a Tri coach in my area, and have been on the phone with Carrie Cheadle, who has been wonderful. Let me know how you are doing.Can't wait to hear from you.
Love, Melinda
