Noticing a somewhat rapid decline, I turned to a Lucozade bottle and consumed roughly 200ml. Find 3 of your running buddies and create a team, each member of the team will run a 1 Mile Leg and the time for each will be added up. Having T1D, I can’t simply go out for a run at anytime. Did I mention I’m probably not as fast as I used to be? She turned to an insulin pump within two weeks of her diagnosis, and ran three marathons before taking on the NYC Marathon this past weekend.

If you need to test your blood sugar during a race, you should be sure to bring your own testing equipment.

Baker leads to Chestnut again and a right on Neponset—this time heading south—takes runners and walkers to their triumphant finish near the start. But the CGM kept showing my BG at around 220. It was great following Brandon’s progress on Twitter and his blog, and I could feel myself cheering proudly when hearing that thanks to all the D-data access during his run, Brandon was able to beat his goal with a time of 2:13:20!

If there is anyone out there that has conquered the way to run a 3.1 race with Type 1 diabetes, please share it with us. Read more about her story here. As a Nightscout-newbie myself, seeing posts like this really make me rethink how much untapped possibility there is for doing this kind of intense exercise safely and effectively. Thanks for sharing your experience, Brandon, and for being an inspiration! Make sure you’re using an accurate meter. 14.

I’m reminded of a slide presented by the keynote speaker at the recent Children with Diabetes (CWD) conference, one that I now have saved on my desktop.

Doug started in early September but had to stop the run because of unexpected dangerous low blood sugars that he couldn’t quelch, to the point where he felt it was reckless to continue. As he shared with his followers: “Everyone knew this would be difficult. What I hope is that others with diabetes see it as a reason to be smart and courageous and to never back down from the impossible and give it everything they have.” Don’t worry, Doug is not giving up; he’s already completed several other runs including the Capital to Coast relay in Texas, and more are planned for 2015.

And it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Doug take another try at the Appalachian Trail down the road. He has a site called 1Run where you can follow his moves. Another D-Runner featured in the news recently is Aaron Perry from Wisconsin, who’s been an active advocate sharing his pastexperiences in running and becoming an Ironman. As a PWD for more than two decades now, Aaron told a local newspaper that his doctor had urged him to start exercising more in order to prevent D-complications — but that physician discouraged him from doing an Ironman challenge. Combined with my blood sugar numbers from my 12 mile run and the Army Ten Miler, I’m gaining confidence on knowing what to do to have good numbers during a long run. Most recently, Aaron was advocating on Nov. I have never had to quit a race because my BG was so low.
