Run for the Cure

I think I may have been cured today...just for a little while.  Diabetes-free for a day so to speak.

I ran 25k today, the longest I have ever, EVER run.  I had to run it alone, the day before the rest of the running group.  No support vehicle, no friends, no back up bag of supplies.  The lone wolf indeed.

Here's how it went.

My blood sugar was 5.4 when I woke up.  I ate and headed out the door.

At kilometre 17, I was 7.4

At kilometer 25, I was 7.0.

No highs, no lows.

I was a runner.  Not a runner with diabetes.  Just a runner.

It was nice.

The cure continued all day.  No post-run high, no low three hours later.

Tomorrow is another day and I'll take whatever it gives me.

But I kinda liked today.

PS - we kicked ass tonight at curling.  Won 7:2 :)


  1. Keep up the GREAT work! Love that the BS's cooperated.

  2. That is totally awesome! I will say when I read your blogs, I am inspired to live healthier, especially thru exercise. I am mending a broken rib, but I may hop on the elliptical today! 25 K don't mess with you. Great job!

  3. Thanks folks! And Trev, I hope the rib heals quickly so you can take up running. If you're lucky it might still be cold enough for you to be a crazy winter warrior :)

  4. Hi Celine!!
