I am SO excited that I found this group!!! I don’t know anyone with diabetes and I certainly don’t know any who ride.
So, this weekend is my 2nd race since being dx’d. I did my first race a couple of weeks ago and I came in dead last. The race was located at Lance Armstrong’s ranch near Austin, so needless to say, it was a tough course. I was quite nervous about my bg - I wasn’t sure if I was feeling jittery due to nerves, or due to a low! About 3 miles into the race, my teammate in a younger group had a terrible accident, so I waited with her for about 20 minutes until EMS arrived. BUT, if I added in that 20 minutes, I would have been in 4th place! So, my goal was to finish, and that I did!
This weekend is the last race of the season, and I am really hoping to do well. Unfortunately, I broke an $800 part, so I’m riding on a loaner. I’m just happy that I’m starting to feel like my old self again. It’s so frustrating to not always be healthy enough to do what I used to do, but I’m getting better.
Anyway, I just wanted to stop in and introduce myself and tell everyone “hi”!
