@med. I don't have a CGM and I don't want to waste time and I don't want to stop.

Great job, Mike!

Just curious - why don't you test while you're running?

That is so cool, Jeff. I'm sure you and your brother will have a memorable experience. One of my younger brothers, the only other one who does marathons, will arrive here tonight, and I'll be trying to get him out for a run.

I'm planning to run my second marathon in May, along with my twin brother Brian, who is also a type-1 diabetic and who has never run a marathon. My goal is to break 4 hours--I was only 50 seconds off in my first marathon, so I think I can do. My brother's goal is to finish under 5, and I'm sure he can. I've had diabetes 44 years, and he's had it for 43, so we will represent 87 years of diabetes running this race. This site was helpful to me in running my first marathon. Jeff
