Chad O. replied to ANC's discussion 'muscle cramps during marathons' in the group Diabetics who run Marathons!
"I have had this occur in 10k races a couple of time but not in the two marathons I've run. Reason for them, I believe, was the opposite of your idea. I think my blood sugar got way too high from the nerves and food eaten prior to the race. Just…"

"It is not too late. I did a lot of drinking and smoking cigarettes (and other things) in my late teens and twenties and have somehow managed to stay healthy. Start today by taking the best care of yourself that you can...today! Don't worry…"

Chad O. replied to AK's discussion 'freaking out first time marathoner' in the group Diabetics who run Marathons!
"Hey. Good luck with this. I ran my first marathon 2 years ago and then ran Chicago last year. I loved it. One of the best days of my life. Sounds like you've got the training down for the most part. In my first marathon, I tested my blood…"

Chad O. replied to Dane's discussion 'Looking for my next marathon...which marathon is your favorite and/or which one is your next?' in the group Diabetics who run Marathons!
"Dane, Congrats on finishing the second marathon. Sounds like it was a challenge. Tough to run when your BG starts out low. Makes for a long day for sure. Great job though. I am planning on running both Minneapolis in June next year and then Chicago…"

Chad O. commented on Andy's group 'Diabetics who run Marathons!'
"Hey Jerry, thanks. Yeah, I really meant that I don't need them for diabetes purposes, aka low blood sugars. I do use a few gels whether my bs is low or not to get some energy and carbs. I know I don't eat like a "normal" runner…"

Chad O. commented on Andy's group 'Diabetics who run Marathons!'
"Hope the run went well Dane. Do you cut your basal rate during your runs? I set mine to 50% and my blood sugars tend to stay right around 200 or so during my runs. I tend to not even need the gels. During my marathon, I think I had only 2 gels the…"

Chad O. commented on Andy's group 'Diabetics who run Marathons!'
"Thanks Dane. My blood sugars were regularly a bit high during training. This was a bit higher than usual but I was pretty revved up and full of adrenaline which really affects everything. I was using the cliff energy gel shots, not the blocks. I am…"
