Walkin'.


Every year, I do the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes.  This year I had planned to participate in the one in Lincoln, NE (in September), but decided yesterday that I'll also be doing the one in Omaha (which is tomorrow).  I'm supposed to be running an information booth before the Lincoln walk begins to promote Juvenation, which is a type 1 diabetes online community (run by JDRF) that I am involved with.  I'm looking forward to seeing my family at the Omaha walk, to absorbing the good vibes from all the people there, and also to get a little peak at what the Omaha walk might be doing in the way of a table.  (Actually, I don't even know that they'll have one for Juvenation.  This is the first time I'll be doing a table at a walk, so any tips I can pick up would be super welcome.)

If you'd like to help support me either by walking with me or donating, here's the website you need.  You can register yourself to walk on the right side of the page.   To donate to my walk, you can search by my name and state (NE) on the left side where it says "Donate To A Walker".  (I would give a direct link to my fundraising page, but since I've not yet connected my full name to this blog, I'll remain a little sneaky...)  :)  Thanks everyone!

  3. How did it go? I'm missing the walk in Chicago this year due to a wedding, but I'll be there in spirit!

  4. It went really well! I had planned to do a post about it, including pictures (it was very scenic, right by the water), but guess who forgot her camera? Sigh. At least I was able to keep myself between 90 and 120 mg/dL for the entire walk, but not without the help of some Luna energy snacks, a box of juice, and a couple of glucose tabs. :)
