Brian....I am running in the Dublin ( Ireland) marathon next Oct. if you would like to join my running group. We will be running for and raising money for the Cancer society as we have a few runners who are also cancer survivors... I am the only T1 runner in my group.
It is a mixed group both men and women going... Enjoy a few days of rest.. I have a 15k on Sunday.

Thanks jljr! I think a little bit of a break sounds good. So does a fast 10k! :) I might take a vacation in Dec. Hoping to do some surfing and diving in Panama.

Thanks! You can see where my low BG started to affect me around mile 22.

Wow!! Awesome medal! If you are going to go low, I guess 26.2 is a good place to do it, since they have lots of snacks on hand!! Congratulations on your amazing achievement!!

NYC Marathon was incredible!!! I loved it! Definitely one of the coolest experiences of my life. The weather was perfect, the spectators were amazing and I was well prepared for the race. I didn't have any trouble with electrolytes this time but a little trouble with sugar. BG was 45 at the finish but overall I felt great and had an awesome time! Thanks for all the encouragement! This one is for you guys!

Made a mistake this morning and bolused before my run, went low but got out of it in time to save my run.
@Brian - How did it go, are you okay?
