Although I seldom get a cold, I find that after about a mile of running (and other exercise) my nose starts running as fast as the legs! and I find I have to use tissues throughout the training session. Has anyone else had this problem and if so is there anything I can do to prevent it.?

    Simple answers: Yes, everyone I know who runs gets it to some extent, and No, there's no cure for it.

    I used to think that football players were just being crass "snotting" of the pitch, but since I started running, I have a bit more sympathy. Can't see them using tissues though!
