Tick’ed off

OK, sorry about that. I’ve been trail-running an hour a day, so it was only a matter of time before this happened…

Of course, I picked up this tick during this week and a day in California (not Colorado, not too much grass around). Based on my googling, I think this is the black-legged Western tick known to carry Lyme disease. Oh well. It was in the back of my leg, and I think it may have been squeezed slightly as it was removed. I guess I’ll find out in 2 to 30 days if I start getting symptoms.

Yes, I’m now using 98% DEET on my legs. Should help.
