Becky was diagnosed with diabetes at age 28 while pregnant with her second child. Initially, doctors believed that her diabetes was induced by pregnancy and would be temporary state – that she would be a diabetic for a mere twelve weeks and then go back to “life as usual.” Despite eating a plant-based vegetarian diet and being extremely active, Becky's blood sugars remained high and she is now insulin-dependent. She lives in Longmont, Colorado, with her husband and two children and competes in cycling events as a member of Team Type 2.
I traveled to Colorado to interview Becky and shoot video of her during a brutal uphill training session at Breckenridge Mountain.
