Has it really been over a month since I wrote something here? I really should do something about that. The issue is that I haven’t felt like much of interest was happening recently, and the only thing worse than not writing would be writing boring drivel.

Anyway, I’m slowly ramping my miles back up again in anticipation of starting my marathon program come mid-July. This means I’m feeling better and less cranky, which is a good thing, but it also means I need to force myself to be patient and not go too hard or too far too fast (insert Veruca Salt voice here: But I want to be fast again NOW). In the spirit of not punishing my body I’m going to run this weekends ODDyssey Half Marathon with my friend Mike and try to bring him in under two hours. Mike is a relative novice to running, and just ran his first half last month. Even this early into my training a sub-2 should be do-able for me so we’ll see how it goes! On a personal note – this race is the day after my one year “diaversary”and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate.

Speaking of diabetes, I had an appointment with my endo the other day and got a copy of my most recent labs: my 4th consecutive sub-6 HbA1C! (just picture me doing the “cabbage patch” here).

Oh one more thing: I think I may have said I’ll do the Pocono 70.3 next year with one of my friends from IN. I guess it’s time to get back in the pool…

    Good to see you back! I received my Spibelt in the mail yesterday and I’m excited to start using it to carry my supplies. I’m still healing from my stress fracture, not quite ready to run on it, but I have something for my supplies nevertheless (trying to strap a monitor to a bicycle is interesting). Over the last few weeks I’ve started mildly exercising, and even walked briskly for 30 minutes one day out of the week. It caused quite a bit of swelling in my ankle so I’ve held off on the walking. I know that I need to keep at a good pace and not do too much too soon, we see where that led me. I appreciate seeing your blog this week, because you reiterated that simple concept and as badly as I want to be running, I don’t want to “punish my body”. 🙂

    Congratulations on the A1C, and on the upcoming Diaversary!
