This year i am taking part in both the Leeds and York 10k run for all series and will be raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support and British Lung Foundation. In the previous 2 years i have run the Leeds 10k with times of 1hr16m55s in 2014 and 1hr15m58s just last year.
Although i am a sufferer of asthma I have always enjoyed taking part in sporting events whether it was 5 a side football whilst at university or running events 5k or 10k for charities while raising money for good causes nearing the amount of £1000 overall.
Often people have wandered with my asthma how i manage the longer distances and in my case its the matter of keeping it steady and pacing myself, of course each time i want a personal best but for me at end of day its finishing thats the biggest achievement. Below are my times from each run in bold.
