D=Blog Week: Diabetic Running Blogs

Although I don't blog about diabetes a whole lot, last year I participated for a few days of Diabetes Blog Week.  This year,  I hope to do the same, with the goal of actually blogging about diabetes the entire week.

Monday's post is:

It seems the most popular thing about Diabetes Blog Week is that it helps us find blogs we weren’t reading yet and connect with some new blog friends.  With that in mind, let’s kick off Diabetes Blog Week by making some new connections.  Think about the d-blogs you read that you think we may not know about and introduce us to one that you love!!  Let’s all find a new friend today!

Most of the blogs I read are not related to diabetes.  I have some in my reader, but don't read them.  But, there are a few diabetes bloggers that I really do enjoy.  When there is a post in my blogger reader by them, I always click on it.  Below are my favorites:

Scully is one of my favorite bloggers because she cycles, runs, and is incredibly honest.  I can remember when i first read Scully's blog I thought she had run a ton of ultra marathons and could learn so much from her.  I have learned so much from her, even though she has not run an ultra marathon.  I had the honor of meeting her last month when she came to Illinois.  She is very laid-back knowledgeable.  It was an incredible experience to say something about diabetes and for her to completely understand what I said.  She is an awesome person.

Marcus is someone who I have always admired.  He has given me a lot of advice over the past few years that probably would have taken me a long time to discover.  He is also fast and ran the Boston Marathon this year.  Marcus is on the Team Type 1 running team and inspires others through his work with the team.

My last favorite blogger is a person who rarely blogs, Ryan.  I first got acquainted with Ryan back when I lived in Ohio and we saw the same doctor (who was phenomenal). Ryan, like Marcus, runs for TT1.

There are so many diabetes blogs to read, but these are my 3 favorite.  Do you have any recommendations for me?      


  1. Awww.... you are sweet!
    any time you want to talk "diabetes" to someone who understands, I'm just an email away!

  2. Despite being a regular reader of your blog, this week I haven't been! Thanks for the kind words. :)
