Polio+ pneumonia = severe asthma

I had polio in 1963…it effected my breathing. I then had pneumonia twice during elementary school so by 12 my lungs had had enough. I’ve lived with it for 45 years. I run 23 miles a week. I’ve trained for and ran a half a dozen half marathons. I don’t let my asthma steal from me the things I love to do. Most of all I love playing with my grandkids so it is important to me to keep my lungs as healthy as they can be.
