Oh kathy this is great! In response.... ...whether you finish or not the training is worth it! Most important is that you have the courage to start! Do it for all of us, some of us aren't at that level and it is inspiring to watch and cheer our friends on. We ride with you my friend. Prayers and best wishes for great weather, staying above the allergens, building up your lungs and body and freedom from any incidents to slow you down. gigi

Thanks Gigi! I AM doing it for all of us who deal with asthma! And it really did take a courage to start this and share my journey. The whole thing is kind of scary! I will definitely feel you riding with me! I have a special shirt and I'm going to write everyone's name on it who supports me with a donation for AAFA !

I'm glad my story is encouraging for you! I'd love to hear more about your training and goals. I'd like to invite you to join us on the support forums to share your story. To start a...

Kathy, I am training to walk a half marathon on October 1st and I have many of the same concerns. I am doing well with training now, but I am concerned because July and August are my bad months for asthma and allergies. I also have trouble with hot humid weather. I am encouraged by your story and I am excited to follow your journey while I continue with mine!

Kathy P Trains to #TackleAsthma

Clearly, I’ve lost my mind! I’ve committed to train for and participate in a half century (50-mile) bike ride. That’s not the crazy part.
