"I have CGMS, so I bolus depending on the reading. But the Bolus adjustment I do per gel (25g carbs or 35g carbs depending on my plan) is about 50% or less of what I would normally do for that amount of carbs is I am not running. Example: On last…"

"Does anyone bolus at all when taking an energy or gel during a longer race? If so, how much relative to a normal carb ratio?"

"I'd stick with the pump. I had a similar experience going off of it last summer. I had a long run on Saturday, switched to Levemir after that, had a nice time of it for 2-3 days but then went off to Maui and had a really hard time. It was sort…"

"Tried to lose the pump last night and go on Lantus before my last significant effort this morning before next week's marathon. BS dropped to 41 at 9 pm then skyrocketed to 570 at 11 pm. Needless to say, a long night before my 10 miler this…"

"Who is running the Carlsbad Marathon January 18th? I've run this race every year for the past seven years, but my motivation to make it 8 in a row is not that high, unless there are some other diabetics running. I will run the Surf City…"

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!

Hi Andy,

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.
