Spring is most definitely in the air

This morning was beautiful; warm and sunny, a light breeze, the smell of flowers, and... pollen. I set out for a run this morning, and mid-run, my allergies started acting up. By the time I complete 5.6 miles, my eyes were itching like crazy, my nose was running, and I couldn't stop sneezing. Come on, trees, you're killing me... KILLING ME.

Ugh, this time of the year, it's unavoidable. Being indoors helps a lot, but I don't want to hole up inside when it's just so nice out! I try to avoid taking allergy medication, but I might have to buy some if it gets any worse. Hopefully the trees will stop trying so hard to reproduce, and I can go outside without wanting to scratch my eyes out.

After my run, I fueled up with a huge bowl of mango chia oats. I am probably going to hang out at the bookstore later today and get some school work done. Hopefully. I am usually so lazy on Sundays. Actually, I am lazy most days, but especially on Sundays ;)


  1. I don't like taking any medicine really but I have to take a daily allergy pill. It's just unavoidable. Even with it today, I'm a little sniffly but it would be INSANE if I didn't take it. I used to get "allergy attacks" where my face wouldn't stop leaking for hours and hours and it would leave me absolutely exhausted afterwards. Also, my sinuses are pretty much full all the time. I like being outside too much to deal with my stupid allergies!

  2. @Every Little Thing
    That sounds terrible ): I was outside a lot today, enjoying the weather and visiting the zoo. I took one Claritin, and still had sniffling and sneezing, too. I can't imagine what condition I would be in without it!
