Sebastien Sasseville is making his way to Toronto!
7, 500km. 180 back to back marathons in 9 months. He’s been running since February where he started his journey in St. John’s, Newfoundland. This once-in-a-lifetime event is called Outrun Diabetes.
Sebastien is now in Ontario after a whirlwind experience in his home province, Quebec.
Current location: between Bainsville and Kingston.
All smiles after a wonderful time in Montreal.
Who does Sebastien cheer for again?
“We have moved into our RV, so ice baths are no longer possible. Sebastien is getting creative and is using the river instead.”
“Best welcome committee ever! We will be based at the Upper Canada Village Campground for three nights.”
“Great company in Cornwall.”

Sebastien Sasseville confesses before his run across Canada: I suck.
Taken this morning around my neighbourhood.
This post was inspired by fellow type 1 diabetic Scully. Her December 12 of 12-tiny things photo entry featured one unit of insulin as the focus, and it was amazing to see visually just how tiny a drop of insulin is.
Hope everyone is staying safe. Happy holidays,
Another needle for you. Another for me.
Before my vacation I had a meeting with my diabetes team at the hospital. My nurse Sue said I HAD to get the flu shot.
“How about I get it after my trip? Last time I got the flu shot years ago I got very sick.”
I ended up getting it yesterday at my local Shoppers Drug Mart, almost a week since I returned back from my vacay. It took less than 10 minutes, quick and easy. I didn’t know this but now every Shoppers Drug Mart in Ontario offers the flu shot.
After my jab, I Instagramed this photo:
Thank you to everyone who responded to my photo on IG! It was interesting, as I’m a newbie type one diabetic, to hear the wide range of comments about the flu shot. Some of you said you wouldn’t go without it and others made it clear you would never take it again.
A few months ago I came down with the flu and it was terrible. It was three weeks before I got back to my old self. The nasty bug also threw my half-marathon training out of whack. This was my first big sickness since getting diagnosed and the awful feeling was one I never wanted to experience again. That, coupled with my nurse’s advice, is why I decided to get the shot this year.
Does your diabetes team advocate for the flu shot? Do you take it? I’d like to hear your thoughts.
