When I woke up this morning, my blood sugar was a bit higher than I like it but I had two low carb alcoholic beverages last night for the Superbowl so I didn’t inject any insulin to correct. I don’t drink often but when I do, it seems to counteract my normal dawn phenomenon and sometimes even drop my BG low in the morning. 
On today’s training plan I had legs, which I find to be really important to support my running habit. In the middle of my workout today, my BG started to drop.  My pump alerted me when I hit 90 so I had a single slice of dried banana (about 1g of carb). It may not seem like a lot but it was just enough to keep me stable. The Law of Small Numbers saves me again!
