AR, I don't think "bonking" is blood sugar related. Maybe more lactic acid build up.

RE: Team Wild, $600 for a training plan? OUCH!

Happy New Year all! Please go out and represent.

Re "not having diabetes", I suspect that a lot of "straight" people without diabetes would benefit from having a CGM when they are training as a "bonkometer"?

Happy holidays everyone! I have decided to run 40kms to celebrate my 40th birthday on April 1, along with a few halves throughout the year. A bunch of crazy Canadians are coming down to run a half in Napa Valley, CA in July. Anyone else doing it?

one more thing - I wish us all a year of easy BG control so we can run as if we don't have diabetes

I ran my last 2011 run on Friday - 15 miles. It was terrible. Hope 2012 runs are better.
I'll be running my first marathon of 2012 in a week and a half. Hope to break all my PR this year and maybe even fit 3 marathons in.
Good luck to all of you and thanks for all your help and support
Happy New Year!!!

Definitely happy running to everyone! I just got back from the last run of 2011 and am looking forward to a fun year of it in 2012 and hope that everyone else stays healthy, has smooth BG management and PRs all over the place!

Happy running in 2012! I'm might try for my first triathlon this year. We'll see...
I tend to sink in water! Happy new year!
