Rio with Team Diabetes

Location: Rio, Brazil

This past year I trained for and ran a half marathon in Rio De Janeiro as a Team Diabetes participant. Through various fundraising initiatives and lots of love and support from friends, family members and the community over 00 was raised in support of diabetes research and projects such as Camp Banting.
A team of 4 of us from Ottawa - Josie, Duncan, Frank and I -accompanied by our cheerleaders Terry and John, travelled to Rio in June and ran the half and some of us the full marathon(Duncan and Frank) on June 24.
While we were down there Terry celebrated his 40th birthday! We spent time in the chi chi areas of Ipanema and Cobacabana and were shown many artist and local neighbourhoods such as Santa Theresa by our local hosts Juliana and Carol. Here are some of the photos from that adventure.
