Craig Stubing

On the show today we have a guy who has been a central figure in the world of type 1 diabetes for quite some time. Craig Stubing has injected his creativity into the T1 community through a number of projects including his very popular, Beta Cell Podcast. As I mention to Craig in our conversation, it was actually his podcast that served as one of the inspirations for me to pick up the mic and share my voice through this very show.

In today’s episode, we discuss the most important lesson Craig learned early on in his life with diabetes. We also talk about lessons we can all learn from the parents of T1D kids, and how, if we take a moment to tap into it, creativity can serve us when it comes to optimizing our own care.

Craig also shares the story and purpose behind the non-profit running organization he started with James Mansfield, called Type One Run. Craig shares his belief that taking that first step, while it might be the hardest for many people, it’s the most impressive and most important for our ultimate success in health, wellness and life. And he also explains how he is inspired by everyday people simply living their lives each day with type 1. 

This is a special conversation with the intent to inspire and motivate anyone out there questioning their own ability to get out and create a better life with diabetes. What we learn in this interview with Craig, is that often, it's simply just putting one foot in front of the other.
