While I was participating in a 5k-walk marathon I had to check my blood sugar to make sure the numbers were suitable for the run. I started off with 190, slightly higher than my average BG, which made me feel a little tired and sleepy. Halfway through the walk, my dexcom started beeping, informing me that my blood glucose was starting to go low. Anytime this happens, I get the same frustrated feeling, all of a sudden, I have to stop and leave to deal with my sugar levels at the risk of not being able to return to your exercise/event. However, this time, as I looked around, I noticed that most of the people who were at the walk had a diabetes gadget. This observation helped me realize I was not alone. This community support gave me the strength to determine that this disease does not run me, I run for it.
