[IP] Type 1 diabetes and training to run

We have one 33-year old runner in Serbia, Nino. Last September he has 
finished The Amsterdam Marathon, and in April this year he has finished 
The Belgrade Marathon. You can contact him, he speaks English. He can 
give you very good advices. His email: email @ redacted

Also, there is a short video about his run in Belgrade. It is in Serbian 
language (still working on English version), but you will understand the 
We supported him and have been measuring his BGs during the run. He is 
still using pens and presently fighting to get a pump.

I can reccomend you this website: http://yes.diabeticrunner.com/  There 
are lot of people you can get in touch with, including Nino.
