In a recent Blog I read this information by a member of My Diabetes Cintral:

"November 14 is World Diabetes Day. On that day, at 14:00 hours (local time), thousands of people with diabetes will test their blood sugar, do 14 minutes of exercise, test again and share their results on this site, TuDiabetes.org, a community for people touched by Diabetes, or on Twitter.

The event is called The Big Blue Test because blue is the color associated with World Diabetes Day. It is based on a test-in activity that took place July 14, where more than a thousand people with diabetes tested their blood sugar at the same time and shared their results online. This time, the activity incorporates 14 minutes of physical activity to reinforce the importance of exercise.

Participating in this event to raise diabetes awareness on November 14 is easy:"

1.Test your blood sugar.
2.Run, jog, walk the dog or do anything you'd normally do as part of your exercise routine for 14 minutes.
3.Test your blood sugar again.
4.Post your results at: http://bigbluetest.org

Your right John and Avera I plan on doing this exercise because I can't wait to see what my bloodsugar is after the exercise. Thanks for sharing! I know all our friends will jump on the band wagon too.
