Thursday workout: ~7 mile run with Dean
I’m not going to say how long it took us, because we were just taking our sweet time enjoying and exploring the city. We found some streets in the city that I had never been on before….I just love seeing new sites and seeing our beautiful city from new and different viewpoints!
The only bad thing about the run was when this happened:
I dropped my camera. It still works just fine, but I broke part of the screen. My last 3 cameras have all passed away from traumatic injuries caused by myself over a span of maybe 3-4 years. My father and Dean say I should be more careful. I agree with that, but at the same time how many people take their camera with them on runs, bike rides…everywhere! I literally take it with me on EVERY run, because I don’t want to pass up a beautiful site or viewpoint, so my argument is if you divide the amount of cameras I go through by how much I use them, I’m really doing quite well. I mean…..of course someone’s camera will last forever if it sits in a drawer for the majority of the year! I get good use out of mine!
Thankfully, the Canon cameras I use are relatively inexpensive (<200), and when Dean got me this most recent camera after I dropped and broke my last camera last winter, he got me a two year warranty that covered dropping it. Smart boy.
So, any hospital workers out there use Avagard as a hand sanitizer at their hospital?
I’ve always had a lot of allergies, but most of them are airborne allergies. The one agent that my skin is incredibly allergic to is this dam$ hand sanitizer they use at my hospital. I knew I was allergic to it, but the other day I was going into a more invasive procedure that required that I either use Avagard for extra sanitation or scrub in the “old fashioned” way. Since hardly anyone ever scrubs in the old way with a sponge and water, I couldn’t find any povidone-iodine scrub brushes and had no choice but to use the Avagard, knowing that my forearms would break out in a rash. It unfortunately ended up being a lot worse than I thought, waking me up in the middle of the night with intense itching.
Want to see how horrible and disgusting my arms look?? No? Well it’s your lucky day, because I’m going to show you anyway:
Beautiful, right? ha. It wasn’t getting any better for several days, so last night I took some leftover prednisone I had from my sinus issues and lathered on the cortisone. Feels (and looks!) much better this morning!
