I'm in Hawaii for a couple of days and interested in trying skydiving! I parasailed the other day and loved it. I use a pump and usually when I do intense things I run my BG a little higher, maybe 150 just to avoid lows. Anything else I should plan for? Thankfully in good overall health after 30 years of Type 1, Sounds like a good way to celebrate my anniversary!

I'm debating running a marathon. i'm on novolog + lantus injections. already in pretty good shape. I've run as many as 11 miles without problems, but want to know what would happen at mile 16, 18, 24, etc. anyone done this before?

If anyone is interested (to jump or watch) there is a group of us doing a helicopter bungee jump on January 30th near San Diego. It will be filmed by the travel channel for an extreme adventure program. If you are in the area let me know, I hope to hook up with a few people with diabetes in the area.

hey everybody, just signed up for this. does anyone have experience traveling to places with extreme weather (very hot or very cold) and making sure their insulin doesn't spoil or freeze?
