Ask And You Shall Receive or Be Careful What You Ask For

Several years back I was enjoying a lovely early morning trail run with a beloved Ultra Buddy when we started talking about one of my ex's. I thought it was funny when I told him "I'd rather sit in poison oak than be with Good Ole' What's His Name"

Here we are, ten years later, as I lie on my stomach, wearing a pair of baggy pajama pants typing this out on my laptop. Why you might ask? Because baggy clothing and lying prone are the only comfortable positions I can get into relative to the - how shall we say - location - of the worst part of the poison oak outbreak. If you are at all sensitive to poison oak, you may want to re-think going on the adventure I regaled you with on my last post. If you do decide to attempt it, at least promise me you will wear a pair of running tights.

Much as you all want to see it, the closest we will get to a photograph of the famous rash is the above photo which at least shows off my cute pedicure. Words to live by - "Leaves of Three, Let it Be" and next time you think you're being funny, remember, it just might come back to bite you in the butt!


  1. oh noooo!! Ouch.. that looks all bubbly and blistery. So sorry!! Get well FAAST!

  2. Yep, and be careful what you wipe with if you happen to pull over and make a pit stop. Don't ask....really, don't....

  3. I that terrible. I had a run in with it Sunday at my race but I must not be as sensitive to it as you. I hope it heals up quick.
