Who doesn’t love springtime?
It stays lighter longer, it’s nice and warm, and everything is in bloom.
Obviously, everyone wants to spend as much time as they can outside in the sunshine, right? Who doesn’t want to be surrounded by nature and spend their evenings running on picturesque trails?
For those of us who suffer from seasonal allergies, springtime can be…annoying.
I want to do all the fun outdoor activities with the rest of my friends and family, but when the pollen count is high, it’s hard not to hide inside.
Since I just can’t force myself to always run on the treadmill when the weather is gorgeous, I’m trying to find ways to control my hay fever in ways that allow me to get outside at least a few times a week during spring.
But there are things you can do that will keep you semi-comfortable during and after a springtime run.
I hope these tips help you brave running in the the pollen and let you enjoy spring – as much as you can with the sniffles!
