Running with asthma

I started running in January and I was running on the treadmill. It was hard at first. I started at 20 minutes and it was a really hard 20 minutes. But I got better endurance and got up to 30 mins. I wheeze like crazy when I run but I use my inhaler before running. I don't know how people can carry on conversations while they run. I can talk but its a couple words at a time and it is broken up.

About a month ago I started running outside. My former cooperating teacher has a running group of kids at the school where I student taught and starting the end of April they meet twice a week every week until a race the first Saturday in June. 2 miles. I joined this group and I haven't died. It is harder running outside than on a treadmill and yesterday I ran 3 miles in 34 minutes. It was awesome.

I don't know any other runners who have asthma so I took to the internet and I found Ros who has a very helpful 101 about running with asthma. What is awesome is that what happens to me is normal...or, well, normal for someone with asthma.

So...3 miles. Thats basically a 5k. I'm hoping to maybe, one day, do a half marathon. 13.1 miles. That would be pretty awesome. But I think I would want someone to do it with me. idk.

Anyway, running is awesome. Running with kids is fun.
