This week brought on a new challenge -- the Manitou Incline in Colorado Springs, CO.
The Manitou Incline, or just "The Incline" as it is commonly referred to around here, is a popular hiking destination that will challenge any athlete. It gains over 2000 feet in elevation in less than a mile with an average grade of slightly more than 40%.
Tim told the complete story of our adventure on his blog. I'm just bragging about how I made it to the top (and back down an adjoining 2.5 mile trail) while still keeping my blood sugar in a safe and healthy range.

A few weeks ago, a friend fighting back against type 2 diabetes said that "diabetes messed with the wrong person." Similarly, type 1 diabetes picked a fight with the wrong person when it decided to mess with me.
