Amy McKinnon is a 28 year old long-distance runner, living in Sydney, Australia. She’s had type 1 diabetes for 16 years, currently wielding the Medtronic 640G insulin pump and Enlite CGM.

She’s training for the 2017 Boston Marathon and her first ultra marathon later this year. Recently, she launched out on an 8-month solo expedition through Central and South America with a backpack full of diabetes supplies. Amy is also a plant-based nutrition coach.
