Less winded during running, antihistamines helping?

I have recently started running after a 20 year absence. I have chronic allergy and sinus problems which do not hinder my 4 mile runs. Recently, I noticed I am far less winded running after I take a 12 hour antihistamine/decongestant(Allegra-D) before running. In fact, I probably could run quite a bit more before I am as winded as I am without taking the meds.
What could be causing this?

It is likely that you have chronic allergic rhinitis and that the Allegra-D

You and me both. :) See if the regular antihistamine helps the same with out the decongestant to know which part is helping you. :) I'm not a doctor so I can't give too much advise.
