Breathe Easy

Most of you know I suffer with Sports Induced Asthma (well used to suffer). Still have it, but I no longer let it be an excuse for not trying hard enough and giving my best in everything I do. Stumbled upon this article this morning, it makes pretty interesting & inspiring reading:
Breathe easy - and take control over your asthma

Asthma can occur at any age and, if left untreated, can cause attacks of coughing, wheezing, tightness in the chest and breathlessness. Symptoms are often worse at night and with exercise but their severity and duration are highly unpredictable.
However, many asthmatics go on to successful careers in sport. Olympian Rebecca Adlington is asthmatic, as are runners Paula Radcliffe and Sebastian Coe and cyclist Bradley Wiggins.
