Charlie Kimball - Type 1 Race Car Driver

1sweetlife's favorite speed demon, Charlie Kimball has already had a fun start to the calendar year.  He competed in the IMSA Tudor 24 Hours of Daytona, one of the most gruelling endurance races in the world.  Unfortunately the car was unable to make it to the end, but his Chevy teammates won the overall race.

He is looking forward now to the start of the 2015 Indycar season beginning at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Indy 500.

We'll all be cheering Charlie on as he seeks his first victory at the great race at the Brickyard.  Hope he gets to drink that famous milk!

Inspirational people with diabetes

Check out this awesome video, featuring our very own Sean Busby.

Sometimes life beats you up and you can't do anything about it.  Every once in a while it's important to remember that tomorrow is a new day and people everywhere are fighting just like you.

Who are some more inspirational people to you?

This bionic pancreas as soon as 2017? WOW!

Amazing new wireless technology that uses a CGM, iphone, and dual insulin and glucagon pump to self regulate blood glucose every 5 minutes. Could change life dramatically for our friends with T1D.

What's your favorite afternoon snack?

There is some debate going on around 1sweetlife HQ about what the best snack is.  There are some tasty granola bars and pretty awesome fruit snacks out there.  What are some of your favorite afternoon snacks?

I always love some good chips and salsa, a granola bar, or a handful of mixed nuts.  How do you curb that afternoon hunger?
