So how did Team Diabadass do in the Capital to Coast relay?
I woke up Friday morning and thought, “Oh, my, the Capital to Coast relay started an hour ago!”
Why did I care about that? Because of the courageous and athletic guys I wrote about here – oh yeah, they also happen to have diabetes.
They did indeed finish the relay, which started at 4 a.m. Friday in Austin and ended 233 miles later in Corpus Christi. It took the team 40 hours and 9 minutes and they were the last team to cross the finish line. To which I say — THEY FINISHED!!!! HOORAY!
Tour de Cure DFW riders Don Muchow, Jeff Kilarski and Glenn de Veyra are featured in the Dallas Morning News talking about training for the Capital to Coast Relay while having diabetes. They are in a group of 12 people, 10 of them who have the disease, training for the 36-hour run from Austin to Corpus Christi. Our ADA board member, Jim Cadorette, is also quoted in the article.
