Nope. Nope. No Way. Nope.

I wanted to go up and spend some time on the Foothills trails this weekend. I really want to get some real hill work in, but I think I am going to pass and run up and down the 3 stairs leading to my front door instead.

Seriously, ONE tick is bad enough but 80+?!?!


Last year, the week before Robie and 2 weeks before my 50K, I went up the Foothills with the new boy. We had ticks on our clothes. This was the first time I ever had seen a tick. I was kinda freaked out all night. Even though this was a year ago, I remember it very clearly. I don't want Lyme Disease.

Would you brave the hills if you knew there were record amounts of ticks? Even with DEET or Off?


  1. I continue to brave the foothills trails despite the risk of ticks. I do a tick check when I get back. As bad as they say it is, it isn't nearly as bad as a typical summer in the southeast. If it was bad there, you wouldn't even try to count... 80 would be considered a low number.

  2. I don't think I could do it! Maybe go up to the houses in the hills and run the streets?

  3. Ugh.. Ticks are gross. But I'd still go.
