Story

Thanks for visiting my page. 

In 2017 I will run 1 mile for every £2 donated. I am aiming to run 1000 miles for Asthma UK who work to stop asthma attacks and, ultimately, cure asthma as well as supporting people with asthma.

The challengeOver the course of 2017 I will be running park runs, half marathons, marathons, an ultramarathon, Man vs Mountain and many many training runs. 

Buy a mile or two by hitting donate. Please give generously, Asthma UK do amazing work and every donation will make each mile that bit easier. 
It would also mean the world to me if you would support me on social media;

A bit about me
I was diagnosed with asthma when I was a young boy and grew up managing my condition with inhalers, steroids and antibiotics. For 30 years of my life I believed I was limited when it came to physical activity and that I would always be susceptible to illness.

Around the time I turned 30 I started exercising and over time I began to notice that the fitter I got, the better my overall health became. In 2016 I completed my first marathon, something that I thought I would never be able to do, I have asthma after all.

And now here I am about to run 1000 miles, who saw that coming?

Thank you so much

Tim
