An IRONMAN Triathlon includes a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and a marathon 26.2-mile run, raced in that order and without a break. Add type 1 diabetes to the mix and you've got a challenge few people ever try. In its first year, the Riding on Insulin Endurance program saw 63 athletes complete IRONMAN Wisconsin and raised $125,000 for the group's camps. Stacey talks to T1D IRONMAN Harry Thompson, as well as Michelle Alswager, the group's development director and an IRONMAN herself. Michelle also shares the story of her son, Jesse. Diagnosed in 2000 at age 3, Jesse died ten year later, when he was just 13. All JDRF Rides for the Cure now mark mile 23 for Jesse, and for everyone who's lost a life to type 1 diabetes.
