Outrun Diabetes update: Montreal will welcome Sebastien Sasseville, cross-Canada run nearly 1/3 complete

Fun. Grounding. Too short.

Those are the words Sebastien Sasseville uses to describe what it’s like to be back home in Quebec.

He’s reuniting with friends, family and home-cookin’.

I asked him what it’s like to finally have meals made by mom.

“Filling. Like combo bolus filling.”

Sebastien began his run across the country in February, starting the journey in St. John’s Newfoundland. Two weeks ago he crossed the border into Quebec and this Sunday, he’s scheduled to be in Montreal.

MTL should mark 2,500km completed, that’s 1/3 of his trek. Roughly 200 people are expected to join the Outrun Diabetes frontman for a 5km run to celebrate the occasion. More info on the run below. 

Here are some Instagram photos of Sebastien’s time in Quebec. All photos courtesy of Outrun Diabetes.

Celebrate 2,000 km of running and nearly 3 months of one extreme adventure. How? With a whip cream pie to the face.

Sebastien Sasseville (above photo, centre) is the face of Outrun Diabetes, a solo 7,500km run across Canada to raise awareness about diabetes and to inspire others to live life to the fullest

Outrun Diabetes logistics man Patrick St-Martin (above, left) got fancy, dressed up with a bow-tie along a lonely stretch of highway, to surprise Sebastien on his milestone.

Here’s a video of how it all went down.

Note: This video is in French and even if you don’t understand, it’s important to watch to the end.

Last week Sebastien Sasseville entered his home province, Quebec. You better believe he’s been partying as friends, family and fans welcome him back.

So what do you do when you’re on home turf?

For starters, cheer for the Habs while tackling the kilometres.

Shawn Shepheard got all the latest updates with Sebastien. Here’s the last video.

 

What you need to know in 5 (video recap)

  1. Sebastien is still smiling but the extreme running is taking its toll. “My legs aren’t getting any fresher.”
  2. Making it this far? Sebastien is surprised. “I didn’t know how things would go. I feel a lot of support. The legs are…still running. All the events and stuff we’re doing it definitely is giving us a lot of energy to continue doing what we’re doing. All is well.”
  3. During his run through Quebec, expect more French content from Outrun Diabetes.
  4. Help spread the word by liking & sharing Outrun Diabetes content on social media. Sebastien also likes food and massages. Get in touch if you can help. (See contact information below)
  5. Every Friday, Outrun Diabetes announces a Fan of the Week. You get a bright shiny disco ball mailed to your house for doing something kind to support the cause.

Sebastien Sasseville is no Drake.

And even if he were a rapper, Sebastien would have to give up the heavy chains to do what he’s doing. Who wants to do that?!

The 6 time Ironman is, after all, running across Canada to raise diabetes awareness.

It’s a 7500 km, 180 back to back marathon run called Outrun Diabetes.

“It’s hard to do these things alone.” (Totally missed this great line the first time I posted. Thanks Kim!)

Start: February 2014 in St. John’s Newfoundland. Goal? Make it to Vancouver by November 14th for World Diabetes Day.

Talk about epic eh? <–How’s that for Canadian.

Here’s the latest: The type 1 diabetic athlete is just 6 km outside of Grand Falls, New Brunswick. Soon he’ll be crossing the border once more, this time into his home province of Quebec.

“Feels awesome! Can’t wait to see friends and family,” Sebastien told me via text message last night.

No doubt he’ll get a hero’s welcome. Not only that, in about two weeks he’s moving into this sweet RV.

“It will help a lot especially for nutrition,” said Sebastien.

Imagine moving from hotel to hotel, along a lonely highway for months on end. His new home should be a big help in being able to better plan meals and have more stock on hand.

Here’s Sebastien’s latest update with Shawn Shepheard of the Diabetes Champion Network. We get to see Outrun Diabetes logistics man Patrick St-Martin on the video too (there he is in the thumbnail below, right).

OneTouch will also be providing updates on Sebastien’s journey. Check out this first video.

Now, let’s look at what we hardly see Sebastien doing, sitting!
