As I began to stretch around 7:45 I could feel that my blood sugar was creeping higher. Having a dry mouth before and during a run is not something that I wanted to deal with. As I continued to stretch I debated giving myself more insulin, I was happy that I talked myself out of it and trusted that my run would lower my blood sugar. As I began my run I could tell that I started way to fast, I quickly slowed down knowing that I had a medium distance run in my mind. Once I got in to my running zone I felt amazing. I was also in my diabetes zone, with both of my major concerns covered my mind began to wonder. I was running roads that in the past caused a lot of problems, now I was going up these hills with little trouble. It is amazing how great you feel once you see how much all the hard work is paying off.
As I finished up I started to feel a little low, I felt very strong the whole run but at the end I began to lose interest, this never happens. At the end of the run I had a blood sugar of 81, not bad but I'd really like to stay above 100 on any run that I go on. I feel good about the half marathon next Sunday. I know that everything won't go as smoothly as today but I feel that I know how to handle everything before the race.
