My first casualty of the training season is upon me. After my river trail run yesterday, I noticed a red, itchy patch on my left leg. I confirmed today with an outdoorsy colleague- I have my first case of poison oak.
I'm usually not careful about brushing up against bushes when I run, and I guess I should be. The good news is, it is only about the size of a nickel. I won't be able to wear pants or shave that part of my leg for a week or two, which stinks. On the plus side, I'll be forced to wear dresses, which I love but don't do often enough.
