Dear Buteyko Center USA,
I want to relay some happy news: I was able to run in and complete the NYC Marathon this past Sunday, November 7th. I have attached a picture of myself at the finish line with my medal (and the Buteyko Center Stop Watch) around my neck.
Although my time was longer than I hoped (over 6 hours), I want to say that applying the Buteyko Method everyday helped me to attain this accomplishment.I attended July’s Weekend Workshop in Woodstock led by Thomas and Sasha. I also met Jesse there and other members of the Buteyko family. I have practiced the Buteyko breathing exercises and techniques every day since then and my asthma has gotten significantly better. For example, my medication use has dropped to approximately one use of Advair every 3-4 weeks and none of the rescue inhaler.
Thank you for all of your help!
God Bless you,
David Lee, New York City
