Join us as Team Diabetes returns to the “City of a Hundred Spires”
“Lace up” to participate in what is considered by many enthusiasts to be one of the top 10 marathon destinations in the world. Winding through the historic capital of the Czech Republic and along the banks of the Danube, the Prague marathon course is truly breath-taking. The course is “flat and fast”. Run the marathon on your own or form a team with three others to participate in the marathon corporate relay.
Prague has been described as a “magical city” whose bridges, cathedrals, gold-tipped towers and church domes are reflected in the swan-filled Vltava River. The centre of the city is a wonderful mixture of cobblestone lanes, walled courtyards and countless church spires, which stand against the magnificent backdrop the Prague Castle. It is a vibrant city that’s both ancient and modern, full of energy, music, cultural art and fine dining.

Hello and thank you for visiting HD! My name is Kim and my husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 3 years ago. When Paul was first diagnosed (initially misdiagnosed as Type 2) he struggled with everything he ate, almost afraid to put anything in his mouth. Due to this, Paul lost 20 lbs and went down to a very "slender" 142 lbs. Through online resources, help from various professionals and testing CONSTANTLY he was finally able to get a handle on what he can and cannot eat and what he needed to do with that information. It has been a long journey that has affected the entire family. Paul is currently trying to manage his diabetes with diet, medication and exercise but he will get to a point where he will become insulin dependent. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. We are not healthcare professionals but we have worked out some kinks that we find help us all cope with this incurable disease. There are always hiccups along the way but we have learned to pick ourselves up and keep going. We put HD together hoping to offer even a small glimmer of hope for those newly diagnosed or those who are still struggling to balance their lives. Truthfully, it is a constant struggle but it’s nice to know there are others out there going through the same thing. My hope is that even if there is one thing on HD that helps you get through the day I will consider it a job well done. Yours in wellness. Kim
