3 colored spokes replaced, unfortunately, by 4 new blue ones.

The number itself is well beyond staggering.

In a pair of 32 spoke wheels, those 4 blue ones laced on my race bike's rear wheel represent the nearly 4 people diagnosed with diabetes in a 64 second period.

About 1 every 17 seconds.

That's 5,241 people.

A day.

Each, and every day.

Even after almost 35 years with Type 1, I am still hoping, praying, and working towards the day when ALL my spokes are black.

Keep. Choppin'.
