I don't know how allergies affect performance. I'm sure it affects some
people much as an illness would.
For me, a hard run (race or interval workout) seems to bring on an "allergy
attack." It doesn't seem to affect me during the run. But once I stop, I
can have sneezing and a runny nose for quite a few hours afterward.
