But this week, something strange has been happening after I run: I get small, itchy hives. I'm fine when I run - there's no itching. But when I get home, I get really itchy within about 15 minutes of coming back inside. And when I look at my skin where I'm itchy (mostly my thighs and my "trunk" but today it was also right behind my knees), there are little hives (and claw marks where I've been scratching) turning redder and redder.
I've had a couple of hives before after running, but they were always right where my sports bra hit my skin and figured it was a reaction to a new laundry soap (I tend to be sensitive to some soaps). But this week they've been more spread out than just my bra line and more than just one or two. I haven't changed my laundry soap and I'm not wearing anything new or weird...I'm just randomly getting hives after I run. Clearly, I'm allergic to running.

Hopefully I'm not actually allergic to running. That would make me sad. (and uncomfortable because I don't see myself stopping just because of some itching)
