It’s Wineglass Half Marathon morning 🥂
✓ Temp basal set
✓ A fraction of insulin bolused for breakfast
I do stupid things when I get freaked out– Exhibit A: high blood sugar all night before my race.
I’m honestly more nervous for this race than I’ve been in a long time. It’s *almost* pre-diabetes long run anxiety.
I’ve been watching and taking notes on my patterns. I did math to determine how much insulin I should take pre-race. Now it’s time to breathe, trust the data, observe, and make adjustments.
I am prepared.
I am safe.
I am stronger than my emotions.
No matter how today goes, I will learn something– about my body and how it reacts to the pump during endurance activities, about my mental toughness, about my ability to remain flexible and adapt.
That’s why I do these things. As much as it sucks to be uncomfortable, that’s the only way to learn and grow.
Here’s to my 22nd half marathon and 1st with an insulin pump! Wish me luck 😘
