Transcend Warrior – Gabrielle Oldfield

My Story:

I was diagnosed in 2014 at 48. My doc said I would need to be careful with physical activity because of taking insulin. I had hiked over 100 miles during the summer and was stunned to think I might not be able to continue to do the things I love safely. I decided to dive in and research, meet other T1s, and find out how to make it work. Now I hike, kayak, snowshoe, run 5k’s and 10k’s, I’ve done one half marathon, and three Tough Mudder’s. I do these things because I can!!!
