I am going to Brighton this weekend with a friend of mine. I am so excited to find a cool running path, hopefully along the beach! I've heard it's a bit like Jersey Shore. I'll be looking to find a British Pauly D!

Evie, who I am travelling with, has been a great support system while I’ve been here. We try to always check each other to make sure we are eating the right things and she
always asked me about training and if I’m feeling alright which is great,because I always have someone to talk to about it. For me, it’s hard to meet new people and tell them about my diabetes. However, when you are living and travelling with people it’s something that needs to come up. The people around you should be aware of what it means when you get a low or your blood sugar is too high and what you need to do to take care of it. I’m always concerned that they will look at me like I am a hassle or weird, but I’ve always managed to meet wonderful people who are sensitive and accommodating.

I can’t wait to see Brighton and discover a new place in
England! I look forward to posting pictures of the running paths I find. 

Have a wonderful weekend!!
