    Hello, I’m from Spain and type 1 diabetic since 2013 Christmas.

    Among more than 56,000 applicants, I am finalist of the ASICS Beat the sun Challenge to compete in Chamonix running around the Montblanc next june 21. You can see what’s all about in last year summary:



    More than a dream for me, it’s a responsibility to demonstrate once again that with diabetes can compete as equals with anyone, in any field of life. Diabetes will be a nuisance but never an excuse

    I just need a final push with your votes to be the first spanish in the amateur list vote. You can vote here (clic in europe):

    The link for vote is not ok in the other post, sorry. Here it is complete

    Also let me copy here what I've just write in my facebook account:

    Thanks a lot to everybody for the support in the ASICS challenge vote, it fills me a lot. I don’t know if finally I will be one of the amateurs runners selected to go to Chamonix but been reached here it is already a big victory.
    During these days I’ve received some messages from parents of child with diabetes (to whom I don’t know at all) telling me that their sons are very hopeful with the possibility that someone with diabetes is so close to take part in this challenge. It’s very motivating for them and helps going on with the correct daily diabetes care. Also makes them feel that diabetes will not be an impediment to get what they propose in their lives.
    I think there is not any prize better than that and so I’m very proud of be able to contribute on that (my little grain of sand). I feel winner already.
    Now carry on voting!!
