Before we get in to the marathon information I believe I need to talk about the diabetes side of things. Flipping the switch in to the OCD diabetic setting has been going well. I have really tightened my control and the results speak for themselves. I wish that I could stay in this setting all year but it is way to mentally taxing. Seeing a blood sugar over 150 gets to me now, that would not be good day in and day out. It is like getting married everyday, you look good in the tux or wedding dress but if you had to get that dressed up day in and day out you'd go nuts. Anyway I'm happy with the results so far and hope that the good blood sugars continue.
Above you can see my official registration form for the New York City Marathon. Why should you care? I don't know but for those that do, you can use my bib number and track me with the official NYC Marathon App!!! The next interesting thing about the registration form is my start information. The Green Wave is possibly the worse wave to be in. The marathon has three different colors, green, orange, and blue. The first eight miles of the race has different routes depending on your color, the only difference is the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the blue and orange routes get to run on the top level of the bridge and the green route gets the lower level and a shower. I will use this article to do the shower explaining. I will be sure to run in the middle of the bridge!!
