Tomorrow will be very interesting, I have no clue what to expect when I run the race and I also don't know what to expect diabetes wise. For the race I really want to have lower than an eight minute mile pace, if I can do that I will finish with a time under 1:20:00. Finishing under an hour and twenty minutes is my main goal, my next goal depends on my time but I want to finish in the top 300. Those are my only goals for running.
My diabetes goals are a lot different, I want to keep my blood sugar below 200 but above 100. I believe that will be the toughest goal to accomplish. With a 6pm start to the race my eating habits will be all messed up, to run my best I should eat two to three hours before the run starts. That means eating "dinner" at 3pm, my "dinner" will be breakfast. I know how to run early in the day after breakfast so hwy risk eating a sandwich or pasta and not know how my body will react. Although the time of day may be different I know how my body will react to a couple eggs and a couple gluten free waffles. I also know what amount of insulin to take and the appropriate time to take my meal insulin so I'm not low for the race. (I swear all diabetics should have an honorary degree in some sort of math) It will be a very interesting day but I'm excited for the race and everything that comes with it.
I will do my best to post pictures and a little paragrpah about the race tomorrow but I can't promise anything
