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.
