Welcome to Sea Peptide Salties
a home for people with diabetes who are doing amazingly adventurous things.
I am Erin Spineto. I write, train, and adventure, all while taking care of a chronic condition called type 1 diabetes. In 2011, I sailed solo 100 miles down the Florida Keys after doctors told me I couldn't sail alone with diabetes. In the years that followed,I led the first ever all type 1 diabetic team to complete the 12.5-mile Swim Around Key West, a 100-mile Stand Up Paddle trip up the Intracoastal Waterway, and a 120-mile paddle, swim, hike and bike around Turks and Caicos.
Recently, I have moved on to my next creative project, producing an original comedy movie, A Bad Case, under the Sea Peptide Productions banner.
"Erin Spineto should be proud as hell for being it, living it, and writing it."
--Kerri Sparling, creator and author of Six Until Me, one of the first and most widely-read diabetes patient blogs
"Every person with diabetes can be happy when they have others to commiserate with, to plan with, and to adventure with."
Your big adventure may not be the same as my big adventure- but whatever your BIG is, you can find a way to make it safe even with diabetes.
