Running and Headaches

Question for all of you--

This week I came down with a headache that lasted for three days. I really wanted to go running, but was afraid it would only make the pain worse...and I don't like pain, so I opted out.

However, I also know that exercise releases endorphines, which can dull pain.

So...in your experience, will running with a headache make it better or worse?

Thankfully, the headache is gone, so I can finally get back to running tonight! Yay! :-)

And on an un-related note...I was elated to discover a running store in my area (a.k.a. BFE) on Saturday. So, I can finally go get fitted for some decent running shoes!
