I was asked to participate in a week long adventure in Tanzania, South Africa. The details, I will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with seven other type one diabetics from all different nationalities. This hike will be video taped for a movie as well. When first asked to do this I was scared and felt as if I could not even attempt it. After some convincing from friends and family and a nights sleep I decided that I would be insane not to take this on. I knew that if I at least didn't try I would always regret it.
This will happen on the last week of August and there will be electricity along the way so I will be able to blog. Although it is five and a half months away from now, training will be key. Luckily I have been working out steady for the past month and a half, so the next step is to amp it up. To be honest, I am incredibly nervous and I am sure as the date gets closer I will become more and more scared of the trek; however, I love that I will be setting an example for many type ones around the world - showing them that anything is possible!
