I can’t believe it . Today I obtained the age of 55, and the official rank of “Senior Citizen”. I guess I should start acting my physical age huh? (That’s a scary thought).
In my wildest dreams I never thought Id be around this long, but 13 marathons and 500 blog posts later…I’m still walkin, bloggin and breathin. I owe a lot to my friends, my readers and my partner Douglas for supporting my crazy endeavorers over the years.
Because I’ve been more fortunate than most people with the severe form of this disease, I’ve decided to give back, by devoting more of my time in the coming months to asthma research and education. In November I’ll be lab-ratting myself for an important severe asthma research study in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania (more about that in the next post). I’m also serving as an Asthma Community Administrator over at Medpedia.com and have become an asthma and fitness health advocate for several other organizations.
