The #T1Determined Run Across Texas
March 2019

The Plan: Run Across the Biggest State In The Lower 48 -- Solo.

The route for the #t1determined Run Across Texas in March 2019 run covers 860 miles, 28 Texas counties and 100 towns -- from El Paso, the Davis Mountains and the Chihuahuan Desert on the western border of Texas, through the oilfields in the Permian Basin, to the Piney Woods of east Texas and our final destination in Texarkana, on the border between Texas and Arkansas.

It'll be the longest single-state crossing possible within the continental United States. Of the fifty states, only Alaska is bigger than Texas.

I plan to run every step of it myself, with my wife driving our support vehicle stocked with water, food, sunscreen and all the other essentials -- plus insulin, glucagon and all my supplies for my Medtronic 670G insulin pump/continuous blood glucose monitor, Contour Next Link meter and a LOT of Skin Tac and Nexcare waterproof bandages to keep stuff attached no matter how much I sweat.

Calling All T1D's in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma & Arkansas

I'll be passing through all the towns listed below and already have plans to meet up with local T1's in several places.

Get in touch if you'd like to coordinate -- it would make my day!

And if you want to run or walk with me, whether it's a quarter-mile or all day, that's even better.

When you cover this much distance, you don't do it at a marathon pace -- so you don't need to be a marathoner to join in!

Just remember to bring a cap, bottle of water and something to treat a low in case you need it.
