I have recently been very dehydrated due to work and being on doxycycline. I stopped taking doxycycline on Friday and it should be out of my system starting tomorrow. I believe being dehydrated was my biggest problem on my run Sunday, to try and beat dehydration Saturday I started to use NUUN. I have been using Nuun for almost a year before any big race or if I feel dehydrated. It is amazing how well it works and the taste isn't bad at all. I encourage people to check out Nuun.
As a diabetic athlete being hydrated is important and now that I have a secret weapon I can be hydrated and in control of my blood sugar. The diabetic athlete puzzle has a lot of pieces, pro athletes have the puzzle put together, my puzzle is half done. I keep finding pieces however, it takes a little while to find how a piece works but once we get it to fit in we can't be stopped. I didn't start my diabetic athlete puzzle until I was 26 but I have found a lot of pieces in five years, it can be done and I will keep working to find more pieces.
