Happy to say I got a new PR in the Race for Research Half Marathon in Port St. Lucie, FL today (1:54.15). Checked my sugar while running and it was 105...up to 150 shortly after of the race. Everything is normal now and feeling well. I have my last half of the Florida season in April before focusing on the Chicago Marathon. I really hope to meet some Diabetic Marathoners (I know I will meet Acid in Chicago)!

Thanks for the good thoughts, acid, but I have just taken a new job in Southern California, Westlake Village to be exact. I spent the past week working out here while my wife was back in Chandler, AZ packing things up. This weekend I'm here in SoCal renting something so that the following weekend we can move.
So I am bailing out on the Death March. It's going back onto the "someday" stack.
I believe kudos are due to nel and dane, but I'm not clear on the Jeff reference.

Who is Jeff? Did I miss somebody? I try to keep up... I appear to have missed Dane too. I don't want to say good job about a "face plant" though?

Jerry's "heavyweight" race is coming up and I want to wish him a good time lugging his pack for 26.2 miles!!

Nice Job Jeff :)

That looks like a great race Nel! I ran a PR in a 5K today. I did a couple of weeks of hard intervals on the treadmill and 5K "long runs" on the weekend and got my time down. I also put 10 more lbs on the weights for knee extensions.

Participated in the Great Aloha Run, Feb 20 , 8.15 miles , Honolulu ; signed up the day following our arrival in Waikiki , without training and was unconcerned how long it would take before I crossed the finish line...over 29,000 participants from Elite runners to babes in buggies ...a fund raiser for non profit organizations in Hawaii

I ran my first half marathon when my brother ran his first full. We were celebrating our both putting prostate cancer behind us! It was a very special and emotional day! Now we will be running together for my first full in Chicago this October. I will be looking through this site for help in controlling my diabetes while doing the extra long distances. Good luck to you and your brother...I hope to hear about your success!

Took a nice face plant 2.5 miles into my 11 miler yesterday while visiting my in-laws in Ft. Myers...scraped up my hands and got a nice strawberry on my chin! The good news is not only did I finish the run but I ran with my glucometer for the first time and had a good blood sugar one hour into my run.
