Well, I am a couple of days late, but Merry Christmas to you all!
I am so incredibly blessed and this time of year, when I celebrate the birth of my Lord and my Savior I am especially reminded of this. I hear the carols and think of what they say and mean, it just makes me so very thankful for the promise of things to come, even when things seem so bleak in this world we are living in.
I have not been training the way I should be, but have been getting in some nice 1-hour + runs on a consistent basis. I have even spent some time in the weight room at school trying to get a little stronger in the middle. Now, THAT would be really something to accomplish :)
Molly is investigating the possibility of a continuous glucose monitor. The increase in information available and, therefore, the control possible is exponentially beneficial to the long-term success in avoiding complications from abnormal blood sugar levels. I know that I have been very fortunate that Molly is so dedicated and attentive to her diet and glucose levels over the past years. Her personality allows her to do this, but she still gets frustrated when her readings are not what they should be. I can't, or don't, always give her the credit and attention she deserves. I think I am doing this run to try and show her how important she is to me. I would love to see an artificial pancreas or even a cure in her lifetime.
Thanks so much to Pat H., Randy, and Peggy for your contributions ! I am mailing the checks tomorrow and we will see the new total in few days. I will be hitting 5% of the total. Getting there !
Time to hit it hard; the training and the fundraising. Once again, I need your help. Please tell your friends, put it on your facebook, contact all those celebrities, professional athletes, and generous relatives you have and sell, sell, sell!
Thanks and God bless!
