St. Louis is considered one of the allergy capitals of the United States.
I’ve been really suffering this spring. Frankly, it’s demoralizing to get into my car and have to turn on the windshield wipers to clear enough pollen off to be able to see to drive. My maroon car looks green.
Until recently, the main effect was on my eyes. Last Friday, I decided that, come hell or high water, I was going for a bike ride. I put on a mask and packed an inhaler and went out for a ride.
The ride was good. The price I paid was pretty steep – sinuses and lungs. I’ve been pretty knocked down for the past few days. With luck, the allergy season will end soon, but this seems to be a brutal spring allergy season in many parts of the country. If you are suffering, you definitely have my sympathy and best wishes.
But, I really want to get out on my bike soon. Biking is like blogging – once you get into the rhythm, it’s difficult to break the routine, especially when it’s not your choice.
