In 2011 Erin Spineto completed a five-day solo sail around the Florida Keys. Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 19, she’s since completed other adventures such as a relay swim around the Keys and a stand-up paddle along North Carolina’s intra-coastal waterway. Her new book, Adventure On, offers advice to keep people with diabetes motivated to pursue their dreams and manage T1D day by day. Spineto is married with two children; she and Stacey talk about juggling family and work (and T1D) responsibilities, getting away from it all and whether Spineto’s job as a middle school teacher is tougher than a solo sail!

Stacey also shares her family’s recent adventures in the Galapagos Islands and how they managed her son’s type 1 diabetes while snorkeling, hiking, eating new foods and spending a week at sea.
