Thanks for the advice! The Cool Running site was extremely helpful (I didn’t even know there were 2 types of shin splints - mine are definitely anterior.) and I agree that I should probably stretch more. I tend to be pretty bad about that.
Welcome, and thanks for joining!
I can’t imagine running a marathon without a pump, let alone a BG meter! Come to think of it, I can’t imagine running a marathon period (running is not my strong suit, so I don’t usually do it on purpose). So seriously, hats off to you! And please, please post the sugar packet picture. I laughed just imagining it.
You will LOVE having a pump - what kind are you getting?
I’m doing my century on a road bike, but I commute and do a lot of my training on my mtn bike. I don’t exactly have a rolling BG setup but I have become pretty good at pulling out the OneTouch Mini as I’m clipping out. Can’t wait to get a CGM.
And yeah, I have been following Team Type 1 - those guys are awesome!!!
And finally, welcome to John/Tina/Kerri/Andy/QDfUH - It’s great to see the group growing so quickly, thanks guys!!!
