In about 9 days, I will run my 1st half marathon. T1 diabetes is such an individual thing so I know "words of wisdom" are difficult. My big question is, for those diabetic marathoners out there - what do you eat for breakfast?
The run starts at 7am (which is about 2 hours from my normal breakfast time) ... I know carbs are a necessity of course, but just curious what types of things keep you going strong throughout the race and don't create a lot of "gut bulk"? Normally I run in the evenings since I start work so early in the morning so I'm a bit nervous. Any tips? I'll have myself loaded with quick sugar gels (I generally need to eat about 20 carbs every 30-40 minutes when I run).
I just wish I could run this race worried more about "the run" instead of my blood sugars. Blah.
