Last night in Arkansas.  I wanted to go for one last run against that hill.  That damned hill.  My best was three full circuits with the hill each time.  Tonight I couldn't get to the top of it the first time without stopping to walk.  The last few weeks work and visiting schedule cost me.  The first time I slowed to rest the second time up the hill I looked down and saw I had around a dozen ticks on my legs.  I started picking them off Satchel and myself before I realized they were getting on faster than I could get them off.  We ran to a flat open area and cleaned off more before walk/running home to spend another ten minutes picking more ticks off. 

Goodbye Arkansas.  The road beckons.
