Day Off!!!!

Had a wonderful days running today at the 2015 Burine 10, met some inspiring people, enjoyed some lovely sunshine (not to self wear sunscreen during North2South run), made some lovely new friends and got to catch up with some old ones.  My blood sugars are steady but on the higher side and seem to be […]

North2South – It’s Here

Wow what a busy few weeks it has been!!!! With the final details of the run to arrange, sponsors meetings, training, taking on the JDRF One Walk (as event host)  and ensuring MiniMed Miles is set to start plus being a mum and partner, there has been moments of forgetting I was a type one […]

Wearing Your Pump

Back In The Mix

After afew weeks off  yesterday I was thrilled to take on the roll of Tasmanian Road Runners’ Foot Solider (which involved coming at the rear of the field and helping those struggling).  And I have to say it was the true meaning of fun run with lots of happy face completing   the Budget Fun […]

Diabetic Again!!!

For the past two weeks I have been on CGM and also for most of my marathon training program I had CGM which on more then one occasion saved my backside thanks to the amazing MiniMed 640G and SmartGuard.  Having these tools is almost like having a holiday from diabetes……..the holiday is over!!!!!!   Since […]
