Sorry I've been a little absent lately. As usual, homework has been taking over my life, but a few other exciting things happened!
A few days ago, HealthCentral.com contacted me via email. They found my blog, and thought I could provide a unique perspective on asthma as a new runner, so they asked me if I would like to become a contributor to their website! This is really exciting for me, because one of the main reasons I started blogging was to hear from and maybe help other asthmatics going through similar things I'm going through. I will be posting there weekly and I'll provide links over here so the wheezers can have more to read! Here's my first introduction post: my "asthma story".
After writing my first post at HealthCentral, in which I mention I haven't had a severe attack since I began running, I of course had a severe attack. :( I'm allergic to grass and my campus had a field day on the lawn for greek week, so I broke out in hives which led to an attack. Needless to say I didn't run this week because I've been recovering. However, I'm officially signed up for the OKC Memorial Half Marathon on May 1st! I've only got a few weeks left to train!
Ah!! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
