Should not: You need to look at the rules of the race and if a question ask the race organizer. You need to be certain your physician feels it is OK to run in the race.

No.: No worries. Your body also makes corticosteroids naturally to decrease inflammation.

No, you only: Get in trouble for anabolic steroids, not the catabolic you received
