I DON'T plan on running either of these anytime soon, but I do want to start training as if I'm going to run one.
I already plan for the worst when I workout: test strips, basal adjustments on my pump, quick sources of sugar just in case, etc. I'm concerned that if I really do one of these races about my equipment. It's not like a spin class where you can just keep pedaling, check your sugar level, and go from there. At least, I don't think so.
I guess that's my question for type 1s who've run this sort of race, whether you pump or not, what was it like? How did you prepare? What did you take with you while you were racing?
