    Anyone have this problem as well? If so, how did you alleviate it?

    I always breath in my nose and out my mouth. It happens whether I run inside on treadmill our outside on track/street.

    Thanks

    cold air will agitate the nose and cause it to run. It's natural. Your body is programmed this way.

    He said it happens when running inside as well.

    Do you have any other sinus problems like recurrent sinus infection or post nasal drip? Getting a runny nose while running isn't abnormal... It happens to a lot of runners.
    A lot of times it is due to post nasal drip buildup in the rear sinuses and when you run and breath faster/heavier it tends to thin out the mucus more and cause it to start running down your throat and out of your nose.

    This happens to me a lot now that I tend to get recurrent sinus infections and bad post nasal drip. Sometimes it'll happen just from lifting, lol.

    that's another great thing about running- clears the sinuses!
    but yah, don't be self conscious when working out- nobody else cares how baller you look while running

    I couldn't disagree with this post more.

    OP is correct about breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth. Are you sick? Allergies?

    My gym is cold indoors too, some nights I'm freezing if I pause for more then a minute between any lifts or cardio. I've got the same sort of runny nose problem, but it's really mild so never bothered with it.

    It's fine, and you wanna breathe in your nose out your mouth to heat up the air and your core in colder temps. Running nose is fine and it happens to me too. Just snort it up and spit it out. As for looking like a badass while doing this I don't know what to tell you as I couldn't give a fuck what others declare "normal."

    If it's not affecting your ability to breathe properly don't worry about it.
