Running and allergies

I've been doing some reading on running and allergies and I've reached the conclusion that I'm just weird. Actually, I reached that conclusion some time ago, but I digress...

So it seems that most people with allergies find it hard to run outdoors during allergy season. For me, allergy season is more or less twelve months long, but my daily antihistamine seems to take care of my "seasonal" allergies. It's the chlorine allergy that makes me miserable. The good news is that running seems to take care of that. All that sweating must flush the histamines out of my body or something, because running invariably takes care of my itchy, watery eyes, or at least for a while. Now there's a good reason to run, especially if I want to keep swimming!
