Unfortunately NO TuD.org meets in Palm Desert and area . But did meet prior to the start of the walk/run a California Mom with 2 children who asked about our Team Diabetes shirts .I explained , that Team Diabetes is CDA sponsored fund raiser ( not JDRF ) .She was diagnosed at age 11 , living with d 20 years. With her first pregnancy she required 10 shots of insulin daily !!!! She started her second pregnancy off on an insulin pump( same brand :) ) and admittedly she soon became a very happy pumper and has not looked back ...both children are very healthy ! She ran much faster than Hubby and I , did not meet up again :( ...I required 7 Dex4 pills for an under 1 hour walk and suspended pump for a bit , even after a relatively good hotel breakfast with our brought from home instant cut steel oats ...it sure proved once again :" exercise requires less insulin "
To top it off : a Canadian from BC ( Williams Lake ) was the first one to cross the finish line of the 1/2 marathon in 1 hour 16 min and ?? secs :)
