so have you ever switched out a reservoir without changing your Quick-set?

Hey Michael, thanks for the add.
I saw your comment about the spi belt & I'm going to check right now to see if I can buy one somewhere around here (rather than ordering it) because I signed up for the D.C. Half which is SATURDAY (yikes!!) and the forecast is for the 70s, so I can't wear the jacket with all the pockets I was planning on!! Sheesh.
Did you find that the Spi belt was pretty good about staying put/not bouncing? That's my main reason for not using something like that...
Thanks again & good luck with your next race. :)

GREAT JOB on your race!!! Awesome that you came in under time and manged the BGs so well. Go for the 1/2 next, for sure. (Does your wife run, too?? do the 1/2 together---even better!!!). Have a great week. :)

Hi! thanks for asking....the half marathon was fantastic yesterday! Super fun, finished just 4min over my goal time, and did okay with my blood sugar the whole time. Excellent! How are things with you??

Hey Michael, welcome to the pumping world! I think that you will love the flexibility of wearing one. I wear an Animas and just upgraded to the newer Dexcom, and am really finding it is much more accurate than my old one. How are things going for you?

Thanks for the add! Funny how we come out of the woodwork at the same time, getting new pumps! Takes someone vocal enough to shout it out to the world!
