I have never been able to run, even as a teen it was a struggle that ended with me gasping for air. Then a few years ago I was working with a personal trainer and got sick in the middle of a session. She asked me why I didn't tell her I had asthma! Um, because I didn't know that was my problem. Took a trip to the doctor and was dxed with exercise induced asthma and prescribed an inhaler to use as needed. I thought î would surely be able to get in shape then! But bad luck struck and I broke my leg which took a long time to heal. Back to square 1. So here I am just 3 weeks shy of 51 and started a c25k program today. I hope to run the CC 5k at the end of May. It will be my first attempt at actually running a 5k. Wish me luck!
