My daughter, Cynthia, was diagnosed with type 1 DM in 2008 at 11 years old. She and I ran the LA marathon last year with the Students Run LA program - a great group!
We stop every hour or so to check her blood sugar - love the Accu-check compact with the strips that pop out of the drum so you don't have a separate strips container. We use sport beans to bring her up if she is dropping a little. She uses her regular basal rate throughout and does great.
This year, we have identified JDRF as our charity and all money we raise will go to JDRF. Please consider a donation of any size!
Any other tips for a smooth 26.2 miles??
