This evening I had to go to the fudge to fix a low blood sugar. I had just completed a 5k fun run down near the beach. After completing the course in a personal best of 22:37, I felt great. I was happy with my time, I would have liked a sub 22 minute time but a new personal best is always good. I got in my car and pounded a Gatorade to rehydrate, I totally forgot to test but I felt fine so I headed to the store to grab a couple things. As I parked I felt a bit "off", I felt like I had a few drinks and had a slight buzz. I decided to test, I was 43!!! I quickly drank an apple juice and went in to the store to get what I needed and a piece of fudge. I really enjoyed the peanut butter fudge but again I wish I didn't have to eat it.
Running is starting to me a little more of a challenge diabetes wise then I thought it would be. That doesn't mean that I don't like to run or that I will stop running, it means that I will be working my butt off to make everything perfect so that I can run my best without having to worry about a high or low blood sugar. It may take a little time but it will be done.
