Triabetes Project by Andiamo Productions: Highlight Reel

I am excited to share this video, which shows some highlights from Ironman Wisconsin in September. Bascom Hill Band generously provided the music and the production costs were graciously donated by LifeScan, maker of the OneTouch glucose meter. From Steve Parker, diagnosed after signing up for the race, to Larry Smith, who decided to race to celebrate his 60th birthday and has had diabetes for 47 years, and from Dave Shack, with little athletic background, to Bill Carlson, a seasoned athlete with countless achievements, we had a diverse group. Special thanks naturally go to Andiamo Productions, who immediately understood the vision of this project, and have worked tirelessly and expertly throughout the past year. Keep posted for upcoming announcements regarding the 2009 Triabetes team!

my husband was so excited that he got a spot at Ironman Wisconsin 2009 (his first Ironman), and then after losing 12 pounds over the last few weeks, he just found out he has Type 1 diabetes. I can't even put into words what it meant finding your blog and the triabetes website. He didn't even know if he'd be able to continue - it's been such a shock, but now after finding all of you - there is hope and inspiration. I know he'll be able to keep training and look to all of you for support. Thank you so much for sharing your stories!
