The runner who died participating in the Great North Run on Sunday has been named as David Colley, from Hull.
David, who was 58 and had taken part in numerous Great North Runs over the last ten years, collapsed in the last mile of the run and was attended to immediately by the medical services. A post mortem has been concluded and it ascertained that he died of natural causes.
A member of the family said, “David was a regular runner who loved taking part in the Great North Run and always looked forward to the event. We are absolutely devastated.”
His family have asked the organisers to pass on their gratitude for the many messages of sympathy and support. They have also requested privacy at this very difficult time as they try to come to terms with their loss.
My daughter is just starting to run with me but she seems to have difficulty regulating her breathing. I think it is just a case of thinking to much about how she is breathing, how she is running etc. I have tried to explain how I breath but I don't think that helps. I don't listen to music as I run but to those of you who so do you think that would help? Any other suggestions would be a great help.
And she seems to be getting a stitch right at the outset, is there anything that can be done about that? Thanks in advance
