"Way to go Dr. Soosie!! I was signed up for a race in November but sat it out as a I sprained my knee in October, no fall/ twist/ trauma, it just "went" about 15 miles into a 20 mile training run. It was really sore along one side and then…"

"LA is definitely one of the biggest marathons in the world. I would like to do it someday. It's not going to be 2015, tho. Glad you were able to figure out your wrinkle, drsoosie. Let me know if you'd like to meet up for a training run…"

"I live in Long Beach, but the LA Marathon is a little too pricy for my budget and the number of races I'd like to do. I am registered for the Surf City Marathon on February 1st."

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.
