Rachel & I after the fun run!
After returning to the ranch I took advantage of the campgrounds showers and washed off. (Having a fully stocked diaper bag with body wash and rash cream helped tremendously today) On the way back home I took stopped at Rite Aid and got Benadryl. Combination of those things helped so by the time I arrived home my arms were almost normal, a 2nd shower and some more lotion my legs are on their way to looking normal again as well.
After this run I'm rethinking Woodstock, well at least rethinking my outfit to avoid exposing any skin and avoid the rash yet staying cool enough to run. I also will carry cortisone cream with me along with Benadryl just in case (It makes me very drowsy so I do not want to take in race day unless I have too) Right now I'm thinking capris tights would work. I am thankful though I went to check out the course early enough and have time to adjust and figure this out. If this would have happened on race day it would have been a huge disaster and disappointment.

Do you always try to check out a course before race day? Ever had an experience where you wished you had? Anyone have a pair of running tights/capris they love in the warmer weather that I should check out?
