Frozen Insulin & Unfinished Business: Roddy Riddle’s Epic Arctic Race

0cdb646991.png

Roddy Riddle recently completed one of the most brutal & extreme races in the world. The 6633 Arctic Ultra is a 350 solo foot race through brutal cold, wind and isolation. Dozens enter and only a few finish ever year. Roddy is the first and only person with type 1 diabetes to enter the race so far, and the first T1D to finish it. He had to withdraw from the race in 2016. He shares why he was so motivated to finish and what he learned from last time around that helped him not only make it all the way, but come in second.

In our Community Connection this week, we check back in with the Elbow Bump Kid, Logan Merwin. He’s raising money for several diabetes causes, including CWD Friends for Life Conference. His big news? He’s got a sponsor! We’ll talk about how a race truck team got involved.
