Trond Stegarud, 29, completed the distance half marathon on 19 September 2015.
One year ago, Trond got type 1 diabetes, which means that he is dependent on insulin for the rest of his life. On September 19, he completed the distance half marathon with the backpack full of medication.
-I decided not to let the disease become an obstacle, on the contrary, I wanted to do things I could not do before I got sick! I had lost 9 kg, but I signed up for the Oslo half marathon, without any running experience of any kind, says Trond Stegarud.
After a lot of training, adversity and a lot in and out of hospital, he completed the race during the Oslo Marathon with a backpack full of medicine and food!
-My one-year anniversary was the Oslo Marathon (21 km). Next year there will be a marathon (42 km), Stegarud concludes satisfied.
