Hello,
Just wondering if there are any marathon and 1/2 marathon diabetic runners out there? I haven't had an issue with my blood sugar when doing half marathons YET, but I spend the whole 13 miles panicking if my sugar is too high or low… any advice on how to handle your sugars on race day and what to eat before/after the race? Just wondering :)

Sheri Colberg's book "the Diabetic Athlete's Handbook" is an excellent resource. Everyone is a bit different, and by testing before, during and after long training runs you'll start to learn how to best manage blood sugar levels for your body. ~Lynn @Glucerna
