WOW! I went to High School with him. If I had only known it was him, I could have kept him company for a clip. He got burnt to a crisp on his shoulder blades. I'll have to see if I can dig up his email address.

Mike, I think that was probably Brian Foster.

@Mike, his name was Brian. He said he suffered pretty good on the course that day!

Saw someone wearing a Team Novo Nordisk outfit, with a Ping and a Dexcom G4, competing at the Challenge AC Ironman this past weekend. Was volunteering at a run aid station and wanted to make sure he was ok, but wasn't able to get to him to ask before he took off again. Like most people at that point in the race, probably 7pm/13 hours in, he was looking pretty tired and mentally out of it.

I am in my mid 60's and have been exercising moderately by walk/running 45min then walking my dog for about 30min a day. As far as snacking before and after my walk/run what should I snack on to keep my BS normal. I am on a pump and use a Dexcom G4.

Congrats, Tony! That is a great time!

Hi, Elyssia,
Yes, there are dancers here. Go to the "groups" menu at the top, select "more groups", then search for "dance"
I could have listed some of the groups here, but thought it would be better if you found the ones you wanted.

Comment by Elyssia on March 10, 2014 at 4:04pm
Does anyone know of a group specifically for diabetic dancers? If not this would probably be the best group to find them! I would love to connect and share the ideas and challenges we encounter with this exciting lifestyle.

Looking for new inspiration! I used to be very athletic (swimming, water polo, ocean racing etc.) Currently I'm in the middle of creating a new routine exercise program for myself as its been over 15 years since I've had a regular exercise routine as I did when I was competing.

Thanks for all of the information! I enjoyed reading back through the discussions. I train pretty hard. Besides working out with the elite age-group athletes I coach, I swim, bike, run, and do other strength training. As my honeymoon comes to an end I'm constantly making changes. I just started basal injections after my LADA diagnoses 3.5 years ago. It's a relief to know I'm not dealing with this alone.
