I'm not much of a reality show fan, but if there is one show that I love, it's the Amazing Race. In fact, Fred and I have been told we would totally rock the Amazing Race, except for the fact that you have to be an American citizen to be on it.
So what does the Amazing Race have to do with diabetes? Last night when I was reading up on the teams for this season, I noticed that one of the cast members (Nat) said she would donate part of the million dollar prize to diabetes reasearch if her team won.
I thought that very interesting and needless to say, Team Nat and Kat were my favourites from the start. Well, fast forward to tonight, and I'm watching the season premiere. To my utter surprise, her teamate (Kat) pulls out a lancet and says to Nat, "finger poke!" She then tests Nat's BG for her as she's driving.
Nat then starts to talk about being a Type 1 diabetic... unfortunately, I didn't hear much of what she had to say due to my sheer excitement. I never thought a diabetic would be allowed on the race, but I am so excited to watch how Team Nat and Kat do this season.
