Crying for My Good Health

Today I went to a presentation for juvenile, type 1, diabetes. My mom has this type of diabetes and my grandpa who died 22 years before I was born dies of this type of diabetes. I had a great long run yesterday, and last weekend, and I'm about to attempt something only 193 people have accomplished. I have excellent health, and I don't know why. What I mean is, I could have some terminal disease, or permanent condition, like diabetes, and many of the things I do might not be possible. I can't imaging trying to do a 24 hour race as a type one diabetic! If you went too low on an 8000 meter summit push, you might sit there on that ridge the rest of your life. 

I left the presentation, and I didn't cry, but I was awfully close as I walked back to my desk. Why am I climbing Mt. Everest? One more reason today was that I have to, so that I can tell people about it, people who really cannot climb this mountain. 

Often I look people in the eyes when describing my activities and their face says, 'who are you?' or 'You are crazy!' and my favorite, whether they articulate it or not, 'you're just a person, like me, sitting here, yet you did that unimaginable thing.' I want people to know: what is possible is greater than any of us know or even dream.
