You'd think I'd learn, but every year the same thing happens to me. I check the weather one day and—joy of joys—it's warm! I peek out my window and sure enough, everyone's out in short sleeves. It's spring! And I have a run scheduled! 

How to Run Outside Without Succumbing to Seasonal Allergies

...Until about 10 minutes into being outdoors, when I feel that telltale itch in my nose. My eyes are somehow dry and streaming at the same time, my throat is irritated, and I know I'm in for days of misery. It's spring! And it's allergy season.
How to Run Outside Without Succumbing to Seasonal Allergies
Don't be like me, caught unprepared for the pollen onslaught. First, ask yourself: "Has it been getting warmer? Have I spotted some budding leaves on the trees? Am I about to leave the house with my ankles—or more—exposed?"
If you answer yes to any of these questions, consider taking an oral antihistamine one to two hours before your run, or a nasal antihistamine spray 20 minutes beforehand, suggests Deborah Gentile, M.D., the director of clinical research in the Division of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology at Allegheny Health Network in Pittsburgh. You may want to bring a water bottle along once you're ready to head out; some antihistamines (especially older, first-generation ones) are dehydrating.
Or reach for a natural alternative to anthistamines, like 500mg of quercetin or 600 to 900mg of N-acetylcysteine, both of which help prevent allergy symptoms, says Leo Galland, M.D., author of The Allergy Solution. ur nasal passages is to wear an allergy-proof face mask over your nose and mouth, suggests Gentile. You can find options for as low as $2 on, or Galland says you can just wear a bandana over your face. If your allergies are more extreme, you may want to consider wearing sport goggles as well to keep your eyes clear. Yes, you'll look a little silly. But it's a small price to pay for your health and comfort.
