I joined a while back but never gave a proper introduction.
I’m a type 1 diabetic of 6 years. I was diagnosed when I turned 30. I was a wild land firefighter for Cal Fire prior to being diagnosed then returned 5 years later (2019) as a type 1 diabetic. I proved to myself I could still do it and have now closed that chapter and I’m a stay at home dad to my 6 year old boy and 4 month old girl. I ride my mountain bike as much as I can and I’m also a race car driver and coach. I’ve had a crazy learning curve over the past 6 years and figured out some really helpful stuff along the way. Feel free to ask me anything you want to know regarding firefighting, elite cycling, etc.
