P.S. I don't have a video, but I did write my d-story for Kerri here:

...not sure if you caught it or not when you were following my blog in Taiwan.

Three Buck Chuck--
I just caught this video now (after watching your air guitar performance). It's quite amazing everything you've accomplished just in your first year after diagnosis. Plus, spinning twice a week, yoga AND running 3 miles...then the triathalon...India, LA, NYC, FL, NM, skiing...I'm winded just listening to it all! Thank you for sharing your story with everyone and, as Karen said, giving us long termers/old timers new hope! Plus, I can't remember the last time my A1C was 6 or under...although, I do know you are still producing some insulin, which I assume helps? Or perhaps makes it more challenging if it's unreliable, I dunno...anyway, beautiful job on the video. You spoke with candor and a laid-back cheerfulness!

I can't wait to see all your life has yet to bring...
:) Amylia

Way to go Chuck! You're doing a great job, and it's so good to hear that diabetes is not slowing you down. Many people would have folded into a pool of self pity if they had a heart attack at your age, but you have proactively sought ways to learn and care for yourself. Keep up the good work, both with the diabetes and with embracing life!
