Feel free to shoot me an email. I'm no doctor, but I have had Type 1 diabetes for 9 years, and have trained for and ran competitively in 5 marathons. I am always happy to talk with people and exchange ideas, as I haven't met many Type 1 runners like myself.
Amanda, Thank you so much. The advice is for my brother, so I am going to forward this to him. He is training for his first marathon and I can help with that, but I am clueless on running with diabetes. I know your experience will be greatly appreciated. He has told me he is having some sugar level issues and would like a little advice.
