Are you a runner with asthma? Or do you want to be?

Or is your asthma holding you back in your sport of

choice? Get in touch with me about your experiences

with asthma. Contact me at:

As a runner with asthma I pay close attention to my personal records.


mile 1965 5:00

half mile 1965 2:10

10,000 meters 1980 38:50

5,000 meters 2015 26:18


This year as a 72-year old man I ran a 5k in 30:03, missing my goal of a sub 30 minute 5k by 4 tenths of a second. I attribute my continued success as a runner to breathing exercises described in the book, the healing power of breath: Simple Techniques to Reduce Stress and Anxiety, Enhance Concentration, and Balance Your Emotions​ by Richard P. Brown, MD and Patricia Gerbarg, MD


Thank you for your interest,
