I am 29 a mother of a four year old. I am hoping to get on the insulin pump in the next month or so! I love to run and currantly do 3 miles in 30 min 3 times a week. I first started three years ago to loose weight and get healthy. I am having a lot of trouble with my BS levels, if I take to much insulin I crash too little and I spike, so I am very excited to get on teh pump soon I hope to improve my training and my overall health.
