"Once my eye sight was back to normal and I was able to participate in sports again, I came back to life. I remembered my passions and why I needed to try harder to live a healthier lifestyle. I had never set any major goals in my life, so choosing to focus on my health and fitness was a major undertaking and I decided to set my sights on running a half marathon. This was a chance to prove to myself that I can complete a major goal and not let my diabetes control my life, but rather allow me to have control over it.
I think it is important to motivate others to keep pushing to achieve their dreams no matter how impossible they may seem, and I hope to keep running to achieve new goals while helping others."
