Christopher Rowe's Tour de Cure Page!
On December 10th, 2018, I received what was to me shocking news when I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.
I used to be an active road cyclist in and around Central Kentucky, riding from my home in downtown Lexington. But that was years ago, and my beautiful Lemond Tourmalet bicycle has been gathering dust in my workshop for too long to recount.
But I had already decided that 2019 would be the year I return to the road even before I received my diagnosis, and the committment I have made to taking control of my condition, and to sustained, disciplined self-management through exercise, diet, and scrupulous attention to my healthcare team's advice, including taking medications, dovetails perfectly with the Tour de Cure.

I have a ways to go before I'm in the physical shape I'll need to be in to complete the Tour. We have a ways to go before any of us can rest easy about diabetes. But we'll get there.
