"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 ran the Long Beach Marathon last Sunday. But the real news is that at a dinner put on by a local running club, I won a door prize, complementary entry in the Catalina Eco Marathon, November 8. So I'm training for a couple of weeks. The fun…"

"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…"

"Hi, Brian, 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. I had an afternoon run yesterday with similar issues. Maybe I was just…"

"Hi, Becky, I wear my Dexcom sensor on the back of my arm, up near the shoulder. That works OK for me. If the sensor is on for a while and feels like it might come loose, I have a few cut off sections of tube socks, and I can pull one of these up…"

Jerry Nairn replied to Neil's discussion 'Racing the Planet : The Start' in the group Diabetics who run Marathons!
"Hi, Neil, What's the budget and time commitment to do a thing like this? I'm not ignoring the training commitment, but I have at least an idea what that would be like. Also, what is the schedule? 2015? 2016? I hope it comes together, with…"

Thank you very much for your comment on my poem. I love hearing from people about what they think about it. And yes, I was surprised at how many forms there are when I learned them at school. Again, many thanks!

Hi Jerry,

Can't wait to see you and run together this weekend in San Diego! I get in on Thursday Afternoon and go home late on Monday. I hope all is well with you and look forward to hanging out with you on TUDiabetes.

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).
