Well, my nose was clear and my chest was clear this morning. Ended up running a 2:08:53 half marathon this morning. :)

Thanks for all the words of support! :)

Thanks for the advice, Coach Nancy!

Fortunately, I only had one more run planned anyways before the race (3 miles), so I'll make sure to take it easy and continue with the liquids and rest. Will also make sure to pick up some Breathe-Right strips as well.

Will keep you posted on how well I do on Sunday. :)

Hi Jane,

Hopefully with some rest you will feel much better...my advice no more running until your race. Your body needs to put all its resources on getting you as healthy as you can. You want gain any fitness benefits by pushing yourself to run, but you could make your cold worse.

Glad to hear you are willing to play it smart if your symptoms worsen. That said, this is your first, so you having nothing to prove but to finish. This may be a good time to start thinking about your race strategy...and accepting that while things may be better had you not gotten sick, you will never know. As my running coach told me years ago, "You are only as good as you are at that particular moment, on that particular day, under those particular situations, on that particular course." This is why we must look at every race with an open mind and accept the results for what they are.

I hope you feel better soon!

Coach Nancy

Here I am, 3 days before my first half marathon race, and I wake up with a runny nose and a tickle in my throat. I made sure to start popping Zicam, drinking lots of fluids, will make sure to pick up some Airborne or Emergen-C today, and plan to have a couple of oranges today as well as tomato soup for dinner tonight. Hopefully, that will let the worst of it go through my system today and tomorrow, so I don't have to suffer on Sunday.

Has anyone else ran a half marathon race with a cold? I know the "rule of neck" and won't think of running if I have a fever, body aches, chest congestion or major coughs, but just wondering what other people's experiences have been.
