Rebels, I am speaking with an incredible woman today on the show, Betsy Hartley! If you don’t already know who she is, Betsy has an amazing story of personal triumph to share, so prepare to be inspired.
Betsy was diagnosed as morbidly obese and with type two diabetes at the age of 30. By the early 2000s, she weighed close to 400 pounds. In 2011, she made the decision to change her life and reclaim her health and she’s sharing her story with us on the show today. Betsy tells us about how she got into ultrarunning, how she ultimately reversed her type two diabetes, and the work she’s doing now to spread what she learned on her journey.
Tune in to catch a super inspiring chat I had with an unbelievable woman! I definitely had a fangirl moment and I know you’re all going to love her as much as I do!Type two diabetes does not have to be something you necessarily live with the rest of your life and it doesn't have to be a death sentence. - Betsy Hartley Click To Tweet
