I remember reading about some guy in diabetic rags growing up, but I wasn't into triathlons then and had no idea if this guy was for real or not. I remember he made a little film for the ADA with some diabetic comedian who really sucked. Does anyone remember who this guy is/was?
I would eventually like to contact him.
