I got a nasty spider bite on my lower left leg many years ago. It got horrendously infected and required IV antibiotics to heal, although it never healed fully. I've had it get re-infected once or twice after that, always requiring antibiotics.

This past Sunday I ran my first 5K. I've lost a ton of weight and started running so I wanted to know what I could do. It was called the Zombie Race where zombies try to catch you and steal your health tags. An absolute ton of fun.

However, I cut my infected leg on some thorns along the way and then jumped into some nasty mud, thus packing my wounds with mud.

One day later, I started getting fevery and sore. Sure enough, another leg infection. I'm doped up on antibiotics now so I'm feeling better, but my leg still hurts.

That's an awesome way to remember your first 5k. Way more hardcore than running for twenty some odd minutes.

This sounds like a great learning experience for when the real zombie apocalypse happens. You might want to start designing some sort of Kevlar, Batman like armor for your leg.

It's gonna be tough to get the meds and medical attention after the shit hits the fan.

Right. Zombies attack and you're blaming the thorns.

Whoa! I think Zombie Spiderman would make a helluva B movie.

I'll submit that when I finish the screenplay for Clash of the Tight'uns.
