I Said No


The Power of Focus, Commitment and Sheer Will.



Type 1 Diabetes is a life-long tether with many factors which could tip the balance. Insulin, food, exercise, mood, hormones, stress & adrenaline are just a few. And what works today is not guaranteed to work tomorrow, the goal-posts are forever changing.

I have been inspired to share a brief snippet with the world in I Said No based around my goals and dreams to push my body both physically and mentally to achieve what many don’t even think of trying.

T1D often appears invisible and misunderstood but Everybody has something, whatever your ‘something’ is, it’s the choices you make that define what you are capable of achieving.

When your “Something” is seen or perceived as being prohibitive the reality lies within your own expectations. Choose to tackle the obstacle, create an ally and strive for success.

My chapter, “Redefining Boundaries”, is a peek into what it took to accomplish an Ironman 70.3 event (2km swim, 90km ride, 21km run) with the added complexity of managing T1D.
