    I thought those of you who have submitted a message for my running tutu may like to see the first batch of tags that have been printed. Thank you everyone who has already submitted a message, there is still plenty of space if anyone else would like to include something :D

    My favourite saying is 'The drugs I take are to stop me from getting high' - otherwise for sport it's 'running sweet'.

    'Live, Love, Laugh & Inject' ?
    Or
    'Live, Love, Laugh & Insulin' ?

    Whenever I inject, I say 'just shooting up'. I use the 'I'm high' one. I got an awful glare once for saying that!

    Since this is a great community project I'd love if we could help you raise some money from our Facebook/Twitter pages and maybe get you a whole load more things to put on your outfit! Do you have a page set up on JustGiving?

    Afternoon SophiaW. A lovely thing to do for your daughter - do so hope it all goes well with you on the run. I was 4 when I was diagnosed on my mother's birthday, 30th September 1951. I still use animal insulin as 'human' insulin and I do not work well together. My slogan would be " Insulin dependent for 62 years, still alive & well".

    Or something similar anyway. All best wishes to you.

    Thank you Carroll and Tavia, have added your phrases :D Carroll, it's lovely to get feedback like this from someone who has had T1 for a long time, as a parent I always worry for my daughter's future so reassuring to know others have had it for a long time and still going strong :)

    Hi Sophie ,

    Its a lovely thing to do, I have a son who was also diagnosed T1 at 4.5 yrs, so know what you are going through.

    On the words, how about, " Keep on testing, Daniel Aged 8, Liverpool".

    Hope the training is going well. I have done a bit of JDRF Fundraising, but hope to do a cycle late summer.

    Good Luck,

    Lois

    Hiya

    I was thinking on lines of Arnold Schwarzenegger favourite line in the Terminator movies:

    "I'll be back"

    Great Idea Sophie, I've thought about raising money with my next run, but with only three weeks to go I don't think I'll have time.

    Perhaps you could put this on your costume for me? "Diabetes is learning to live with me" Dave, aged 39
