I guess it has. Old habits die hard, especially blog slacking! It's been a busy but good past week or so.
The insulin pump is working magnificently although this last round was a little jacked up getting the infusion set in. It got all gummed up on the quickset and wouldn't shoot all the way in my stomach. Which, let me tell you, is more painful than gross! It has been a bit of a lifestyle change but has been good at forcing me to check before meals instead of counting my BS reading from two hours ago.
The weekend was great! Friday I hung out with my friend Carly, who is an incredibly awesome person, and her friends who were very nice as well! I'm looking forward to hanging out with her again soon, it feels like it's been forever already! Saturday I met up with some friends on participating in Kent Krawl 2008, an annual event that includes hitting up all of the spectacular bars in Kent. lol 12 bars made the list this year I managed to hit up 5 with the group before heading home. I had an early start on Sunday. However, I was required by the group to do two drinks at every bar which was probably way more then necessary! The bars I attended were BW3, Dominic's, The Brew House, The Zephyr and The Loft. The Brew House was where I witnessed history being made by Michael Phelps who is incredible by the way!!!! What an athlete!
Yesterday I started a new sport in addition to cycling. Running! I'm sure I looked ugly out on the trail but I did manage to run 2 miles around Virginia Kendall Lake. I only think I threw up in my mouth once! :) I'm a little sore today but nothing unbearable. I wanted to start out on dirt since my running career ended 10 years ago with shin splints so bad that I could barely function throughout the day. I was a strong middle distance runner back in the day running about a 1:54 800 and a 0:53 400 meter. So we shall see how this goes, I'm not out to break any records but felt damn good sweating it out for those two miles. If anyone is interested in giving me tips or meeting up for a run let me know!
That's all for now, more to come soon! I'm going to the Linkin Park concert tonight at Blossom!!!
