7 Marathons - 7 Days - 7 Continents: Eric Tozer's Story

It's called the World Marathon Challenge: 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days. And Eric Tozer did it all with type 1 diabetes: We talk about the path that led Eric to this amazing accomplishment and Stacey asks why anyone would even want to do something like this! We find out about blood sugar management, travel issues and how to stay fueled up through seven marathons.  Eric is a co-founder of the Diabetes Sports Project which has great information and inspiration for athletes with T1D.
