Itchy Hands While Running?!?

Recently I went to run and for the first mile or two my hands were itching and I was literally itching them and I couldn’t figure it out!!

That has never happened to me before. I got home mentioned this to my wife and she’s like “yeah that happens to me like every other run”.

It was super weird since that feeling was new to me, so I tweeted this out and one of my athletes actually replied back to me and said that he’s looked it up and it’s actually related to blood flow and your capillaries expanding (which are tiny blood vessels) and they stimulate the nerves in your hands and you get kind of itchy.

So, now you know!
