Interesting Article: Why some people get more mosquito bites than others

Happy Hump day!

I think we all know by now that every Wednesday is probably going to be a good day (or at least morning) because of my early-morning barre class at Vida. Man, I love this class, and per the usual it kicked my butt today. I swear there was sweat running down my legs. Glorious. 🙂

I thought I’d share this article I came across last night because of how timely it is. Tommy and I noticed last night that we got chewed up by mosquitoes sometime this past weekend or last week and we were trying to pinpoint when. One of my thoughts was maybe I get bitten on my long runs when I run early in the morning and then the thought of having to douse myself in mosquito repellent prior to running really bummed me out. I always feel so sticky when I have to put that stuff on. 😦

Well if this article is on to something it looks like I’m going to have to – apparently mosquitoes are drawn to people that work out because they are attracted to higher body temperatures…

Read the article, it’s pretty interesting!


Do you think this writer’s on to something or are you skeptical?
