Day 3: Stride for Pride
My plan in January was to be ready in March to run it, but I have continued to be sidelined by the negotiation of lows while I work out. After two miles I bottom out. Time for candy. I test, sugar up, ret-test and keep going. Almost defeating in a way if the point of my workout was to lose weight. Pretty much this has been my routine since April when I started working out seriously again after my diagnosis three years ago. I give kudos to the women, Jackie, Jennifer, Helen, Haylie, and Erin, who have traversed those miles with me. They will tell you that they have been scared when I start sweating globs that indicate something other than the fact that I have been working out. I was scared too. That fear kept me out of my shoes for a while. But I am back and they have been patient and stuck by my side.
