And now, I remembered why I have always been weary about spring marathons.
Allergy season. Allergy season and its damn pollen count.
|Trees in full bloom might look pretty, but they might just be my undoing.|
|Tulips are a sure sign of spring. And, I think they are one of the few flowers I'm not allergic to. Hooray!|
So why bother to try and run (and bike) during this time of year? Well, I am currently signed up for an Olympic tri in less than three months and I'm a little unsure how everything is going to come together at this point. But races aside, the sights of spring still make my suffering with it. After all, how can a treadmill compare to this...
|Doesn't this make you wish for bathing suit season?|
only to encounter this less then 3 miles later?
|Deer! How could I not stop to snap this photo?|
I'm sure I'm not the only one suffering from horrendous allergies this time of year. I wish I had more pearls of wisdom to share on surviving this season. But clearly, the best advice I can give is to load up on meds and get through it the best you can. Sorry. But if you have any magic solutions, I would love to hear them!
Until then, I'll just be hiding in my bed with my tissues.
