Transcend Warrior – Maryanne Garcia

My Story:

I was diagnosed with diabetes at the ripe old age of 53. I have been an active runner since 1983. I have run 5 marathons (qualified and ran my best time in Boston 3:55:40!) and multiple 18 milers, half marathons, 10K, 5K races and 3 sprint triathlons. Once I was diagnosed I had a lot of trouble controlling my blood sugars especially during workouts. I have been lucky to find and to attend Diabetes Training Camp (x3), awesome experience! With that education, training and support I have been able to continue running. Transcend Glucose Gels are perfect for carrying on my runs. Easy to open, taste good and the gel is easy to take.
