I know most of us are suffering with unseasonally low temperatures and heaps of snow, but I'm optimistic that spring is just around the corner. However it's not too early for us outdoors runners to start thinking about one of the unwelcome aspects of the warmer weather - tick bites. This week is Tick Bite Prevention Week
As a 'tick-magnet' I wrote about this on my Outdoors blog last year. The majority of times I've picked up ticks has been when out hillwalking and/or camping, but I did get one of the wee blighters attach itself to me leg when running in the woods adjacent to the village.
