2012, Team Type 1, and stuff

2012 is off to a very "warm" start, and I'm not complaining. I could run all year in these temps of 20-40 degrees. We have really only had a handful of days with temperatures in the teens or lower. It seems every year I forget what colder temperatures do to my blood sugars. During the summer months I will sometimes decrease my basal by 10%, but usually not lower than that. Recently, I have been decreasing my basal by 75%, even with this huge decrease in basal, I've still had to consume monster amounts of carbohydrates. For example, tonight I tested my BG 30 minutes before the run and was at 80. I decreased my basal by 75%, and consumed 65g of carbs. Then 20 minutes into the run I at another 25g. When I finished up this session I was at 115. I'm trying to plan better for my runs and check about an hour before the run, that way I can decrease my basal, and be set when it's time to run. I'm also looking for some more natural means of glucose than sport beans, glucose tabs, and Gu. I'm afraid what my teeth are going to be like in 30 years, but that's a topic for another day.

My training for 2012 is off to a really good start. Last week I logged 50 miles. On Saturday, I logged a 16 mile run with the guys on a very hilly course. It was a relatively cold run, but was a very fun run with the guys through Northern Kentucky overlooking Cincinnati.

I haven't really talked about Team Type 1 much yet, but words can't describe how excited I am to be a part of this group. The mission statement of Team Type 1 is: "Team Type 1 is fueled by a passion to improve the lives of others. Through athletic accomplishment and public presentations, TT1 inspires those with diabetes to become more engaged and effective in their diabetes self-care in order to live a life uncompromised by diabetes." In December I went to Tucson for our "Training Camp", and it was amazing to be around people that are fueled by their Diabetes just as I am. It's one of the driving forces in our athletic achievement. In the coming weeks I'm going to talk a little more about my Team Type 1 "brothers and sisters", each having their a own amazing stories and achievements. I truly believe that this team is going to help lift me, to reach the goals that I have been focused on for years, both athletically and personally.

Keep Running!

Hi, I was just reading your blog. I work for the local Ohio healthy water company OXYwater. I was wondering what your opinion is on hydration beverages during work outs - specifically for people with diabetes. OXYwater is partnered with the Central Ohio diabetes Association and is drank by many athletes, but we don't have a ton of feedback from diabetic athletes on our product. Was wondering if we could send you a free sample.

Hope to connect,
