WALKING FOR A CAUSE...AND SOMETIMES JUST BECAUSE

%$^#@*&$%$ MOSQUITOS...

6-21-10

Double walking again today...I did 5 miles this morning (ok, into the afternoon...I left the house around 11 am...) and deliberately went when it was pushing 80 degrees to help facilitate getting used to the heat. By the time I finished it was 86 and I felt fine.

This evening I went back out (of course I was headed for the frozen yogurt place...where else?) and the Spouse Thingy headed off on his Trikke and we met up halfway through. I realized upon reaching the yogurt place that a second walk was probably not my brightest idea, given the fairly heavy dinner we'd had earlier. But, I survived. I did another 3 miles...I think. When I got the park close to home I was at 2.66 miles, and when I was around the park and the corner my GPS still read 2.66...I think I turned it off when I was getting the water bottle out of my back pocket. Turned it back on and it read 2.85 when I got home...so I'm assuming I actually did 3, giving me 8 for the day.

But damn....after 8 pm the mosquitoes are out in force, and they really like me... I'll be itching all freaking night long...

Remember...there be PRIZES, people!

Ambesol,the little bottles of orangey chemically smelling stuff for tooth and gum pain, is what you need. It's the only thing I've ever used that has killed the itch for me. You just apply it with a q tip til the itching stops and you're good to go for at least a day or two. And by then if you need to reapply, it takes less.

Never would have thought of that! I'll give it a try!
