My story

[p]I am running the London Marathon to raise funds for Asthma UK, a charity I have a personal interest in. I myself have had asthma since childhood, and although well controlled, I still have to use inhalers on a daily basis. Several of my close family also suffer from asthma, including my nephew, Joseph, and niece, Olivia, who have both been hospitalised by asthma attacks. It is an incredibly scary experience finding yourself or your child unable to breathe properly. [/p][p]Asthma UK provides support for asthma sufferers and also funds research into medication to manage the symptoms. Since I was young, there have been significant improvements in medication for asthma, and hopefully this will continue to develop to help children like Joseph and Olivia in the future.[/p][p]I have found that running regularly has helped me to manage my asthma better, and I so will be running the London Marathon to raise money for this cause. I will also be running several other races to raise money for the charity:[/p][p]June 2019 - Orwell Challenge, trail half marathon (14 miles). Completed in 2 hr 6 mins[/p][p]October 2019 - Chelmsford Marathon. Completed in 3 hours 22 minutes (new PB!)[/p][p]March 2020 - Cambridge Half Marathon. Completed in 1:30:26[/p][p]October 2020 - Virtual London Marathon - Completed in 3hrs 59 (with a break half way through!)[/p][p]August 2021 - Vitality Big Half - completed in 1:33:17[/p][p]October 2021 - London Marathon. Completed in a NEW PB of 3:19:01[/p][p]Thanks in advance for your support.[/p][p]Simon[/p]
