One of the things that I love most about running at the Rose Bowl is the greenery- it is such a lovely setting!
I started out with a lot of energy and optimism but shortly into my run, the wonderful bushes and trees that I enjoy so much became my nemesis! Even though I had taken some allergy medicine before leaving my house, I was having a major attack. I couldn't breathe, I couldn't swallow and I felt like my head was in a vice!
After trying to power through for a mile or so, I gave up and wheezed and walked my way around the rest of the loop.
I was so disappointed to have my allergies interfere with my enjoyment of a beautiful Saturday.
Today's Question: Do you have seasonal allergies? If so, how do you keep them under control when exercising outdoors?
