He was in radio contact with his pit crew, who informed him that he had a headwind coming out of the turn and onto the 5/8 mile "straight." Charlie kept an eye on the car next to him, moving closer and beginning to crowd it on the inside. Having raced professionally for six years, he knew that he had to make a move, and soon. He shifted into sixth gear and accelerated.

I'll never forget the afternoon of January 22, 2003, and the phone call that came from Derek's pediatrician. I was just leaving my classroom that day when I noticed the light on my phone lit up, alerting me to a new voicemail. My heart stopped when I listened to the message. The doctor asked me to call him back as soon as possible.

As an Ironman triathlete with type 1, I get asked a lot of questions.
How do you control your blood sugar during a race?
What foods do you eat?
What products do you use?
How do you balance work, family, training, and diabetes?
Sometimes, people simply ask me if I am nuts.

Jerry Mathers, one of the most beloved childhood actors of all time, starred as Beaver Cleaver in the hit television show "Leave it to Beaver" from 1957 to 1963. When the show concluded in 1963, Mathers attended University of California, Berkeley, and then worked in real estate and catering. In the 1980's, Mathers got back together with several "Leave it To Beaver" original cast members, and starred in "The New Leave it To Beaver," which ran from 1982 to 1989. As Mathers puts it, he sort of "retired" after the series concluded, and from that point on, his life became sedentary. An ensuing weight gain of about five to seven pounds per year followed.
