Sneezing fit

Finished my 4 mile pace run this morning with a sneezing fit. Seemed to last forever, but I'd rather put up with the occasional allergy reaction versus taking meds. I stopped taking the prescription meds for allergies back in 1996 when I started running marathons. I felt they dehydrated me to much. Also, I've read and firmly believe the more I run in the elements the more my body becomes adapted to the allergens.

My oldest son Darrell went through the allergy testing and shots about the same time I stopped taking the meds. He doesn't appear to have to much trouble with his allergies. Dylan on the other hand takes a over the counter med for his allergies.

Leaving work early this afternoon to go to the Country Music Marathon expo.
