She's one of the top ultra marathon runners in the world, and she's achieved it against the odds. New Zealand athlete, Lisa Tamati, was often hospitalised with asthma as a child. Yet she's gone on to run more than 60,000 kilometres across every major desert in the world, and run the entire length of New Zealand in 38 days. Lisa is in Auckland to talk about Asthma New Zealand's Breathe Through a Straw campaign.
