Luckily, the tick infection rate is still low compared to places like Kingston, where a third of ticks are infected. Still, it sucks. Anyone who hasn't bought tick removal tweezers may want to pick some up. We have them at home, in each of our cars (for post-run) and in our first aid kits.
If it weren't the damn HCA creating all that damn habitat we wouldn't have this damn problem.
Don't forget the damn migratory birds. We should build a wall.
If Paul would start running with us again the damn ticks would have a delicious vegan option that they, like the fdf’s, would surely prefer. That’s one selfish guy.
Agreed Trav - I have never got a single tick from walking across a parking lot. Pave paradise!
