"I've been lazy online lately but have been getting back into running. I rode a Tour de Cure in June which was fun but, in the 6 weeks after I decided to ride it, I mostly cycled as I figured (correctly!) that practice would be helpful! I'm…"
"Racing the Planet 260 days to go.
Now that the decision has been made I find myslef starting the search for the best kit all over again. I have to remind myself that I have all the kit already. 3 days before my last Racing the Planet race I had to…"
"Brian,You came in while I was offline for a while, so I'm just seeing your comment now.
It's not the pump that makes your exercise difficult. What you did with reducing your meal bolus was a good idea, but not enough.
"Hello runners! I've begun training for my second marathon but first since my diagnosis in January. So far everything is going well but at the mileage climbs so does my hunger (my BF and I lovingly refer to my hunger as the "Beast")…"
"Brian: I find that doing a run/walk interval keeps my BG from crashing hard. I've done half-marathons at a 3 minute/30 second interval, and although it does lower my BG, the rest breaks from walking seem to keep things more in line. As Mr.…"
"Brian, I run and I am a pump user. Couple things that currently works for me. 1. If I am going for a run, I normally try to have my sugars on the high side 170-200, specially if I am doing long runs. 2. Always carry a energy gel even if I do not…"

i wouldn't call myself quite a runner-- i'm really slow! but it's been strangely rewarding to train for this half marathon-- it's the applefest in hollis, nh! tomorrow i run 12, and then i am basically going to taper down until the big day!
it's nice to meet someone else who was recently diagnosed... i have just celebrated my 2nd diabetes birthday! it's been quite the learning curve. how are you doing? your a1c is awesome... if only mine could get into the 5s!
I can't believe you were diagnosed in Jan and your A1C is already 5..... what was it at diagnosis? Mine was over 12 and it took several months to get below 7. Sorry about your dad. I think it must be a completely different experience to be diagnosed in 07 - my endo is already talking about a pump running off of a continuous blood glucose monitor. I only know one other diabetic (acquaintance, really) and it is strange - but this site helps a lot.
