FYI: found a tick
Hey everyone who rode at Mackey Run yesterday, just thought I would let you all know that I found a deer tick on my arm today. They are like the size of a pencil tip and are in the larval stage. This is the time when they transmit lyme disease so if you found any ticks, make sure you keep an eye on the site. If it becomes swollen or target like, go to the doctor and get a test. If you didn't check yourself; maybe have someone check you all over for ticks. I didn't even feel it and thought it was a blood blister on my arm (since I fell down so much). Anyways, just FYI.
