Today is day 254 and to date I have climbed 64,369 feet.

Over the last few days I have been climbing in the mountains of British Columbia. You have probably seen a few of the pictures on our Facebook–and I am looking forward to sharing all of the details. This has been a life changing few days and I am still processing everything that I experienced. I don’t want to miss any of the details by rushing a half-baked blog entry.

Being in the mountains was refreshing to my soul and the sheer physical duress of the experience allowed me to use only Lantus and eliminate all fast acting insulin for 5 full days with excellent blood glucose control. It was like a half vacation from diabetes taking only one type of insulin!

That said, I am looking forward and I want to share my planned itinerary for October and the months following, as much as I can.

1st-9th Hudson Valley NY (Gunks)
10-16th Adirondacks NY
19- November 1 Red River Gorge KY

November 14th (World Diabetes Day) location TBD but we will be doing something special–stay tuned!

November 22/23 I am planning on a gym climbing outing to Metro Rock in Boston- several people expressed interest in a group outing!

December 7-9 I will be at the Insulindependence diabetes adventure weekend in Joshua Tree NP in California.

I hope to climb with anyone who has availability and I look forward to connecting with you!

Once my computer is fixed I will get back to a more regular blogging schedule– meanwhile follow Project 365 on Facebook and Instagram to see the day to day photos of our mission to raise diabetes awareness!
