This week’s guest has been called an inspirational endurance athlete. And how. When I was writing up the bio I use to introduce each guest, I realized that his accomplishment of climbing Mt Everest wasn’t even at the top.

I first heard about Sebastien Sasseville during his run across Canada last year. He ran the equivalent of 180 marathons over 9 months to raise awareness for type 1 diabetes. He was diagnosed at the age of 22.  It was a thrill to speak to him and learn more about what motivates him to push himself.

Also this week, if you’re an adult with type 1, the people at the Friends for Life conference have a message for you – they want to know what you’re looking for. What would bring you to Friends for Life?:
