Sorry mom, it's permanent...

So everyone, I hope things are going well. Those of you that know me well enough, know that I have several permanent inkings on my body (I'm not going to disclose how many, because that would take the fun out of it! ) Yesterday, I added another. Yes, I caved in and now bear the mark of iron on my ankle.

I wanted to do this at a date closer to IMFL, but just didn't get around to it. Right now it is just a sole IM logo with a palm tree on the inside to represent my time in Florida, but I hope to add to it and eventually get a band around the ankle with subsequent IM finishes. Kind of like war medals around my ankle if you will. I figure each IM is significant and merit's some kind of "reward" and place in the history of one's life. So without further ado, here it is. It's still healing, so I apologize for the "glossiness" of the photo. (and for the "hair-pants"....it IS the "offseason" up here in NY and is STILL quite cold. I need all the warmth I can get!) The funny thing is that I haven't told anyone about it yet. I like to think that a tattoo is for you, if you get it just to tell other people about, then you're not getting it for the right reasons. As long as it means something special to you, it's ok in my book. I don't think any of my close friends or family actually read this blog, so that it why I am posting it here to begin with. I absolutely love it and can't wait to add another inking after the next IM finish. Take care all and I hope everyone trains hard. Cheers.

That is really cool looking. I like the palm tree.

The palm tree is a nice touch. Good job.

My training partner had Ironman written around his ankle with the M-dot as the 'M'. In the left over space on the inside of the leg he had written 140.6.

He gets more comments about the numbers than the word or symbol

looks good. Refreshing to see something original. I'm tired of the sameold M.Dot.
