Hey my name is Matt Raike, and I am attempting a NOBO thru hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2022. As a type one diabetic, I look forward to the growth that the trail allows, mentally and physically. I hope to engage in better habits with my condition over the next 6 or so months. It has been a lifelong goal of mine to complete the AT and believe this is my year to do so. Follow me and my journey of highs and lows (blood sugars, emotional, and topographical).
