blood sugar when I awoke at 7am local time. I quickly ate two peanut butter
crackers before getting ready to go out for a run. I have never been a runner, now that I’m in peak shape I still don’t enjoy a run but I can go for a few miles and feel great. This morning I only had music with me I didn’t use any phone app to track the distance I just ran. I ran for 25 minutes or about three miles and felt real strong, the last five minutes however my lungs felt like they were in a vice. I believe the thin air began to take its toll, just what I wanted!!!
When I returned to the hotel my blood sugar was at 99. Perfect, I could now enjoy a small breakfast and the rest of my day.
My father and I headed to Pepsi Arena around 9:30am and toured
the stadium and checked out tournament town which was located in the Denver Convention Center. The early highlight of the day was have a nice conversation with the head coach of the University of Northern Colorado women’s basketball coach, the only bad part was that I did not get a job offer.
For lunch my father and I met up with my brother and his fiancé. My brother’s fiancé grew up in Denver so we met the family and had a very nice lunch.
After lunch it was time for the main attraction!!! We headed back to the Pepsi Center for the UCONN game. This is where my blood sugar went on a little bit of a roller coaster ride. I was fine for the first half I stayed around 100, the second half the game got very intense and my blood sugar went up to 260. After the game and once the adrenaline wore off it began to head back to normal range. UCONN did not win but it was one of the best basketball games I have seen in a long time so I can’t complain. The trip has been amazing
and we still have two more days to go!!!
