From couch to 5K

I have been working on this running thing for two years approx. It's really getting to me. I have exercise induced asthma. That basically means that if I overexert myself, I can't breathe. How fun is that, right? I know. So, given that, I have a hard time running for very long distances. I want so badly to run a 5K - it's on my bucket list. But I simply cannot even run a mile straight. Simply not able to do it. Now, those two years I spoke of were years of off and on running spurts. I took some time off due to sickness, basketball schedules, etc. So I can't say that it has been two consecutive years. It still aggravates me to no end that I feel like I'm not making much progress. I keep telling myself that it'll get better as it gets warm and I can run outside daily. Yeah, that's what I keep saying.
Will my goal ever get met??? I'm tired of not accomplishing it. Real tired.

you should look into gettin a personal trainer at a gym close by. even though u have 10 billion more important things to do each day-even one session a week or bi-weekly could help u get started on the right technique to run. YOU CAN DOOOOOO ITTTTT!
