I feel like right now, I am on the starting line, and training from here on out will need to be as intense as a race would be. I had time off, due to illness, and now I have a little over a month to kick it into gear. I go back to work and school tomorrow at CSU. I’ve set up my daily schedule to include my workouts so that I don’t get overwhelmed and end up not finding the time in a day to train. It’s easy to do that, when you have a lot of priorities that don’t necessarily weigh over others. All I know is that when I read stories of people who have successfully trained for marathons despite schedules, unforeseen situations or even Type 1 diabetes, that I am able to do so as well.

There is a book called “Diabetic Athlete’s Handbook” by Dr. Sheri Coldberg that is an awesome read for diabetics who don’t want to be held back by their diagnosis. It ties in sport-specific training guides with nutrition and blood sugar/insulin management. It is a great guide to achieving peak performance for competitive athletes with diabetes. I’ve included an Amazon link below if you’re interested in reading the book!

Sunday is a funday runday. Spend your time outside and run a beautiful trail!

    Kris Fergus is training to run Red White and Blue 26.2 in Findlay, Ohio on October 7th, 2012. Though this is not her first marathon, it is the first race in which she will run after being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Training began on Monday, June 18th, and Kris will be keeping a blog to bring you with her on her journey and she will be raising money for Lakewood Hospital during the process.
