Hi piggy, if you Google Ultimate Direction hydration belts, they've got a wide selection that has various color styles and more importantly, multiple zippered pockets of varied sizes. The one I got has been discontinued, but I love it--2 water bottle holsters (I use one for sports drink, one for water, and 4 zippered compartments. Plenty of room for my Omnipod, Dexcom, smartphone, wallet, Smarties, and more. Mine is bigger than some others they offer but that's what I chose. Check them out

I am looking for something to go around my waist to hold my pump,CGM and some carbs when I run. Does anyone know anything that works well?

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.
