Mike Joyce poses on a hiking trail


Mike Joyce is out there – somewhere – on the Pacific Crest Trail. He set out a couple of days before this episode airs, on a 2600 mile long distance hike. It’s part of his attempt to complete what’s called the Triple Crown of Hiking. He’s already done the Appalachian Trail and the Continental Divide trail. Only 535 people have completed the Triple Crown. Mike lives with type 1 and he’ll share how he went from pretty sedentary to long distance hiker and how he manages his diabetes on these incredibly long and challenging hikes.
