If you’re in Sydney and have a family member with type 1 or maybe you’re living with type 1 diabetes yourself, I’d like to invite you to an evening that I’ll be part of on Wednesday November 6 at 6PM, Rydges Parramatta, in Rosehill. The main speaker for the evening is American guest Joe Solowiejczyk. […]Read More Speaking about Type 1 for newly diagnosed kids and young adults
Yes, this features a unicorn pimp surrounded by cheerleaders and I’m not sure I really agree with the Super Mario selection but nobody can argue with a fireman and a giant chicken, and EVERYBODY who ran in the Simpson Desert last week will know why this clip is getting posted on a running blog 🙂Read More Big Red Harlem Shake
Before reading any further, if you are living with type 1 diabetes, please know that you aren’t allowed to use it as an excuse – for anything. Hitting the ‘Quit’ button because you have type 1 is the biggest mistake you can make. Regardless of what health practitioners might try to tell you, the risks […]Read More Big Red Run, what a brilliant week in the desert by Roger Hanney
Stoked! This is it! 4am alarm clock kicked us out the door in Sydney, early flight to Brisbane, and now we’re in the minivan and taking turns at the steering wheel on the way to Birdsville. After a year of amazing alpine, sub-polar, forest, and desert running around the world in 2012, it’s exciting to […]Read More Simpson Desert, bring it on!
Over the weekend I had an eye-opening experience, thanks especially to diabetes educators, young kids with type 1, and their families and supporters in and around Toowoomba, a large country town just north of the Queensland border and a couple of hours inland. – Anybody wishing to donate toward the Born to Run Foundation, please […]Read More Toowoomba, diabetes, running, and the Dark Ages

I’ll be writing more this week to try to convey and capture some of the stories I heard yesterday about the battle these committed people are fighting to try to bring type 1 care and management in Queensland – especially in rural areas and small towns – into line with […]Read More Australian Diabetes Educators Association: Going Ultra!
Unseen video of our Racing The Planet Sahara adventure from October/November last year. See Greg sweat bucketloads! See Jess do Greg-pressing crossfit training! Witness my bag break 20 minutes into the week of running and hear me drop desert eff-bombs!!! Hilarious! We all forget what we say in these interviews because we get sunbaked and […]Read More Team Born to Run: Sahara
This interview just came out in the May/June issue of Diabetic Living Magazine. It’d be nice if the magazine featured more sports and physiology and fewer recipes – metabolism isn’t all about eating, you know! But it’s good timing. AcT1vate was a great weekend for learning from other active T1s and especially author and speaker […]Read More Diabetic Living Magazine interview
Just had some really good news today about doing a presentation for diabetes educators in Queensland at the end of May, to be followed in quick succession by a presentation to diabetic teens and their parents, all with the aim of breaking down mental and educational barriers that get in the way of people living […]Read More Jess Baker goes BOOM! (we knew that….)
As promised, for the dedicated type 1 runners out there, here is my PowerPoint presentation from HypoActive’s AcT1vate 2013, at which I had the great pleasure to present a talk on the thrilling adventure of running ultramarathon with type 1 diabetes. Anybody opening this and asking, “what does this guy know?” has a point. Every […]Read More Diabetes and Ultra Marathon
