My first comment is to Dino in response to being the only person in his family with Type 1 Diabetes. With 5 siblings, I'm the only one with type 1 diabetes. Neither mom, nor dad, nor grandparents, nor aunts, nor uncles, nor cousins. I've been on insulin for 37 years. Saw a nutritionologist on Monday July 7 (last week) he was the first to tell me my diabetes was caused by a parasite in my pancreas.

I was supposed to be working the chute at OHHS, but not one person had come through yet by the end of my shift. I was more of a Walmart greeter to the vans looking for showers and sleep! My son had leg 20 too. His team placed first in the hs coed division, and my husbands team took third in the ultra men's open. He was exhausted, but already talking about the next one. How about you?

I posted this on your "word association post" but since there are so many posts there, I didn't want my message to get lost, so here it is again:
My husband and son are both running in this relay, and I live on Whidbey Island, where the race ends. I am volunteering at exchange #24, at Oak Harbor HS between 9pm and 2am, and would love to cheer you on. If you come through during that time, make sure you say hello.

Is the team all from around the PNW or coming from all over?

Dino, Merry Christmas...Happy Holidays. I stopped by to say that I have always admired your honest appreciation of what it is like to by a T1...and ability to deal. Both you and Danny have always inspired me to take care of myself w/o loosing myself to the disease. I hope you are doing well!

Hey there! I see that you did the SD Half Marathon! Good for you! I am in training now to run it in March 2012. :)

I saw you made a thread awhile ago about protein and how much is too much. I was wondering if you've learned any new information on that subject? I consume a lot of protein at least 3/4 my bodyweight and lately ive been eating more than my bodyweight. I work out a good amount but i've always heard mixed things from different doctors. Some say it can hurt my kidneys, others say it's fine. Nonetheless i'm paranoid about it now. Have you figured anything else new about it? Thanks!!

Don't know if you'll ever see this but it was great to meet you (and Sharon) in person at the Firehouse last night!

Is it possible that I saw you on the side of the course at the Carlsbad Marathon last Sunday (Jan 23, 2011)?

If so - "Hello!"

If not - it sure looked like you.
