Saturday was the Dallas/Fort Worth "Tour de Cure" which I have been doing training rides since November to be in top diabetes shape for the event. Saturday was also my birthday which was pretty cool to be hanging out with a bunch of diabetics and riding my bike on my birthday. The only bad thing was Saturday morning when I woke up I was definitely not feeling it. I slept through the first set of 4:00am alarms, then the 4:30am alarms and finally woke up with my 5:00am alarms and all I wanted to do was go back to bed. When I finally got out of bed I was running late and when I arrived to the check in to receive my bib the race gun went off for my ride, the 62 mile event. So by the time I was checked in and on the course there was a good 5 mile gap from the front of the pack to me. The temperature was OK so I started to push it pretty hard and payed the price on the way back with some nice leg cramps. The good thing was all this diabetes training helped me push through the cramps and finish feeling fine, fresh, and foxy. Now, when I got home there was little of me getting up and down because of the pain in my rear but all in all it was a good event.
