Podcast Ep 01 – Underwater obsessions with Bec Johnson

Episode Summary

Super excited to introduce you to Bec Johnson – CEO of the Type 1 Diabetes family centre and otherwise known in my blog as my friend ‘The Mermaid‘, she is an incredible human who really lives the #lifewithoutlimits motto smashing out long distance solo open water ocean swims, scuba diving in very remote and incredible locations, mountain biking and sailing.

Podcasting with Bec at the Type 1 Family centre

Bec was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes around the same time as me, some 19 years ago and even with this disease front of mind 24/7 its clear that Bec has a passion for the life that exists underwater, always scanning the horizon for her next scuba diving experience that will bring a sense of awe in the epic natural environment that surrounds us everyday.

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Bec at the family centre in Stirling, Western Australia to get a snap shot of her amazing sporting life with Type 1 Diabetes.

Before we stuck into this exciting podcast, check out some of the photos from Bec’s adventures and please don’t forget to subscribe to My Lazy Pancreas so you don’t miss out on our future episodes.
