One of the positive things to come out of becoming a t1 diabetic at the age of 46 was to really take hold of what dreams and aspirations I had going forward into the future. I always dreamed of doing a marathon and so I decided for my 50, which is today, I would go for a half marathon. It was a great success. And I will say without the need to prove to myself that diabetes will never stop me from pursuing my physical goals, or any others for that matter, I actually can look upon it as something that has helped me seize the wonderful opportunities out there and to never sya no to myself. Next stop chicago marathon in six months!!!
There u go!!! What a birthday present to urself!!!! Good for u!!
Way to go drsoosie!! See you there!
Great job! Good luck in Chicago.
I know I can't believe it!!!!! Plus, the weather Gods are on our side. It's supposed to be ideal marathon conditions...YAY! I know we both have trained in the hottest conditions so this should help us make it the last five miles!!!! Tracking your progress I know you are more than ready Dane.
I agree the weather's looking brilliant. Of course, it is Chicago so the long-term forecasts can be dicey!
Unfortunately noon on Saturday isn't in my cards as we're meeting the guy remodeling our bathroom. I'll be there Friday probably around 1-1:30 in the afternoon. I could do something early Saturday AM, coffee or (more) eating.
Yes I can do either coffee or breakfast. I think I sent you my cell. Let's for sure try to meet!
I'll see if I run into drsoosie @ the expo but will txt everyone Friday evening w/ a time/ place. The best coffee is probably Intelligentsia on Randolph but we can find another place or go somewhere more "food" oriented than coffee oriented if you want too. Feel free to yelp stuff as there's places pretty much all over the place if you guys are down town.
Acid I defer to your expert taste buds and native lay of the land. You pick and I shall follow....
