I'm T1 and I do injections. I've signed up to run a half marathon in August. Have any of you run this distance (or further) before? I'm wondering how to keep my blood sugars in check while I'm running. Do you carry a tester? How often do you check your blood sugar? My guess is that because of my adreline, I'll run high. Tell me your experience.

Try to eat a extendbar before you run, watch your sugars when you try and see if that helps yu hold your numbers.
They last 9 hours and carry me through my work outs or at bed times.
great bars,
my doctor told me about them because at 3 am i was waking up so hungry and my numbers would be low.
I would eat and throw off my morning readings.
now I use them and i go to bed with 96 i wake up 96 to 120 area.
worth giving a try.
