Derby girl. Dancing queen. Type 1 diabetic of 18 years.
When I came to the end of my first season of playing roller derby, I realized that my progress had plateaued over the previous month and I found myself saying to my teammates “damn, I really wish I could work with a personal trainer who specializes in type 1 diabetes!” As you may imagine, those are hard to come by, and while I am not even a little bit qualified as a personal trainer, I am trying to become my own expert.
This blog is mostly a personal log, but I’m really hoping to be able to eventually connect to other derby players and other diabetics (and, hopefully other derby players who are also diabetics!).
