Thanks Gary and NATPLUMMER for the info! SEABREEZE...the article is great and now it's bookmarked. I did run this morning with some sort of thing going on, either a cold or sinus, and now feel a bit wasted. Probably need to rest up and push some fluids.

Thanks a bunch!

Ann, here are two things I have heard in this regard. Hopefully someone else can verify or negate.
I understand anytime you stress your body you lower your immune system, but after being stressed it will come back stronger.
Also have heard it is okay to run with a cold as long as it is from the neck up, not in the chest.

Just curious--a recent head cold brought up the question. Running when you're ill--are there any 'rules' to this? Like with a fever, you shouldn't run? Or is it a 'run if it feels good type of thing'? I think I remember that while running is excellent, it may lower the immune system a bit for a short time?
