Second Annual MN Blogger Meet Up Report

Thank you Sara for clarifying the title.   Has it really already been (over) a year since the last meeting?  Holy cow.

I swear I would meet up with all of you every other week if I could.  It is such comfortable company, fun and laughter, and complete understanding.  This meeting was no exception.

I had an opportunity to meet with Drea from Drea and her ever trusty CGMS!

Drea was here (Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN) for a big annual event we have – the Twin Cities Marathon.  She was sponsored by the Medtronic Global Heroes program.  Might I mention that she was the only representative from Canada in the program?  I know there was some controversy around that program this year, but that’s another story.

When I found out she would be nearby (from her blog post), I commented that if she were comfortable with such a thing, we should try to meet and visit.  Sure enough, it worked out!  I’m very glad it did.

Drea is a very fun person to hang out with, and even though I was very tired and worn down from a lot of recent travel, we visited for over three hours (I could not believe it!).  The time flew by as if it were 15 minutes.

We discovered a common favorite, um, “treatment” for late night low blood sugars (cereal).  To my relief I am not the only person in the world who gets stuck in the milk/cereal/milk cycle.  You know – when you finish your cereal, but there’s still milk in the bowl, so you pour more cereal, then there’s not enough milk in the bowl…  We also both share a “bolus when low” mentality – to offset the damn cereal we just over treated with.

Drea – it was a lot of fun visiting with you.  You are a pleasure to hang out with, your bright smile and cheery demeanor put me at ease very quickly.  And I didn’t even give you any “about/aboot” or “eh” Canadian funny business.  🙂

  1. Hi, Scott,
    Concerning that controversy around the Global Heroes program, I hope you’ve heard that they’s worked it out. The Medtronic Foundation and the Twin Cities Marathon have come to the conclusion that there is no need to discriminate against diabetics based on age or duration of diagnosis.
    It was always a great program, but I’m really glad they’ve fixed this error.
    Best wishes.

  2. Scott,
    Looks like you two had a great meet-up. Sorry to have missed it. (I was sick as a dog.)
    Can’t wait for the 3rd annual! (but hope’s it’s not next year, but maybe next month!!)

  3. Haha, you’re catching up with me, Scott! Organizing your own little meet-ups and what-not. 😉 Looks like you two had a nice time, I’m glad you had a chance to connect with another blogger.
    Go OC!
