Running is so much more than just putting one foot in front of the other for me, like I’m sure it is for a lot of you. Some of my earliest memories are of running as a child, whether it be playing tag with friends in the playground or running a hard 1500m for my school athletics team, I’ve always wanted to run!
Well, maybe not always, because there was a big period in my life where the joy of running was taken away from me when I got struck down with pretty severe asthma! I remember it like it was yesterday; running a 800m event for the school team, I was having a great race but with around 300m to go all of a sudden I couldn’t catch my breath. I was forced to drop from the race and I really couldn’t understand what had just happened – welcome to the world of asthma, Loyd!
Run4Adventure is a running related Youtube channel featuring informative but fun running kit reviews, capturing epic race day videos, creating inspiring short films about running and lots more…
The channel was started back in 2018 when I thought it would be a great idea to document my prep, training and race day at UTMB – a 104 mile ultra marathon with 10,000m of elevation starting in Chamonix, France.
