I have now taken the next step and signed up to do the Chicago Marathon. I had to sign up through the diabetic charity group which is actually great. I will raise money for our cause and accomplish a new goal all at the same time. So onto a full one!!!!

Nice job, nice pace and nice race drsoosie! Thanks for the report and I'm glad to hear you enjoyed things and nothing (including diabetes...) got in your way! I like the post-race buzz too!

Hi guys!! Just finished my halfer and have to say ranks as one of the best experiences in my life!!! I ran a 9.26 mile average and came in at 2 hours 12 minutes. The last three miles were straight uphill and killer but I persevered. I don't feel tired a bit, Blood glucose only slighty elevated and that could be from the hill or the last life saver I ate. All my strategies worked and my body feels amazing. Of course now I am planning on doing a marathon next. Thanks for all your kind comments!!!

Last Sunday I ran 40km to celebrate my 40th birthday. After a week of sunshine, I woke up to sleet, snow, rain and wind. Since I am a slow runner, my goal was 5-5:30. I did the first 20km by myself in 2:20 and was joined by others along the last 20. Some ran the last 20 with me, others 10, 7, and 5. Some also biked it. At the end, there was 14 of us. I finished in 5:16 and could not have done it without my friends. The last 5km was hard! It is times like this that you realize how much you rely on friends some times! Some of my best friends I met through running...

As for my blood sugars, they stayed pretty consitant. Better than my training runs. I attribute this to my friend following along with food, gels and water.
