Cut the BS Interviews IndyCar Driver and Fellow T1D Charlie Kimball

What an honor it was to chat with Charlie Kimball about IndyCar Racing and T1D!

I recently had the honor and opportunity to do an interview the driver of this year’s AJ Foyt #4 Novo Nordisk Tresiba car, Charlie Kimball. Charlie Kimball is the first licensed driver with diabetes to win a race in the NTT IndyCar Series. If you know me, you know I was an IndyCar fan before my own T1D diagnosis. I woke up from DKA and thought, “Whoa, they’re using insulin to to lower my blood sugars? I hope they gave me Novolog, because that’s what Charlie Kimball uses!” And now we’re doing an interview together. I’m totally fan girling over here!

Please watch our interview above and please be sure to catch the Genesys 300 from the Texas Motor Speedway live on NBC on Saturday, 8:00pm Eastern! It’ll be such a rush! I look forward to seeing that giant screen one day!

Thank you to Charlie Kimball for taking the time to speak with us at Cut the BS…I Mean Blood Sugar! I had a blast doing this interview so let me know in the comments below who we should invite next!

Thanks so much for reading as always remember to

Love Deeply,

Laugh Often,

and always Cut the BS!

Co-Hostess with the Most-est

CBS summit 2020

If you know me, you know that I’m kind of a “yes” girl.  Even if it pushes me out of my comfort zone, I have said, “Yes!”  This time is no different.

On Saturday, February 29, 2020, I will be spending the day with hundreds of other families living with Type 1 Diabetes.  Why do you ask?  I have been asked to co-host this year’s JDRF TypeOneNation Summit!  It is an honor to be asked and although I’ve got the butterflies-in-the tummy feeling, I have given our local JDRF office a resounding, “Yes!”

Let’s do this!

Let me tell you.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the JDRF TypeOneNation Summit.  It has become one of my favorite events of the year!  It is super informative.  It’s my go to for the most recent Type One Diabetes research updates.  We get to listen to uplifting keynote speakers.  We get to select from a great number of in-depth breakout sessions that are applicable to us ranging from clinical trials, insurance updates, to PEAK (T1D Performance in Exercise and Knowledge) which is JDRF’s new fitness based program.

Some of you who have been to my Adult T1D Talk Lounge Sessions in the past have already asked, “Why is this not an option this year, Cut the BS Girl?”  Here’s the inside scoop: This year, we’re changing it up with something a little different called, T1D Table Talks, where I will be facilitating the Adults with T1D table talk.  If you’ve been to my T1D Talk Lounge in the past, this will have a similar feel, but will have grown to a whole room of people doing it at different age groups and different topics!  Yasss!

If you or someone you know has Type One Diabetes and want to connect with others with T1D including myself click here and sign up!

I look forward to seeing you there and remember to Cut the BS! (I mean blood sugar.)
