"I have considered, but not tried, using K-tape to hold on a sensor. It seems like something designed to last through a marathon, that just might do it.
But as I said, I haven't tried that.
I have bought dollar store tube socks, cut off the leg…"
Yes, sometimes it's not possible to do all of the things we talk about doing to get our blood sugars right during a run. Your run yesterday is an example.

hey Jerry, I just started following you on Twitter. I see we are sympatico on many areas. I was also thinking about how much I've enjoyed your poems here, and seeing you're a Beatles fan, I thought I'd share one of our more popular discussions from way back
Was just reading over some previous conversation on Diabetics who run Marathons - I think Inspirational Badass would be a good term - I know you've helped me along the way, which I greatly appreciate. Hope to see you at IMAZ (still not sure of my plans - hopefully today).
