First Run in Cold Weather

November 11, 2009

I live in Atlanta and while we don’t get the same kind of cold that our friends to the north get. We still get cold weather.

My boyfriend always says it isn’t true, but I actually get my first cold of the year after my first cold weather run. Not just a regular cold weather run. But the kind that is in the 40’s.

I go for my run, get home and the next morning I have a runny nose which is followed pretty quickly by a sore throat and a cough. It is usually gone in a couple of days, but I do get it.

I can’t find any medical research that indicates a relationship between breathing in cold air and getting a cold.

I’m going to keep looking. If I can’t find a real study, I’ll become my own case study.
