BRC-Springs employee and BRC/adidas and Team Novo Nordisk runner Tommy Neal took first in a landslide victory at Barcelona, Spain’s 5k@EASD on September 26th. Neal’s 14:29 was a near-PR for him on the roads.
As a Type 1 Diabetic, Neal has acted as an ambassador for Team Novo Nordisk, an organization that promotes health and fitness among diabetics. Since his qualification at the 2012 Olympic Marathon Trials, Neal is officially the “Fastest Diabetic in the World” and has competed at numerous internationally-recognized events as a Novo Nordisk athlete since his diagnosis in late 2011, including an induction as a Global Hero, and a 6th place finish at Germany’s Gutenberg Marathon earlier this year.
