New Ink

After the Indianapolis Marathon, I decided I needed permanent motivation.  What better way than new ink?!?!?!?!  I don’t have many tattoos…as a matter of fact, this one made number 3 (one of which I don’t really count because it was a stupid decision I made when I was 18 and doesn’t have any meaning to it).  I had put a lot of thought into this tattoo…what the design would look like, where I wanted it, when I would get it, why I was getting it, etc.  After thinking and planning for nearly 6 months, I decided the off season was a perfect time to get new ink.

When I am riding my bike in areo position, there will be a constant reminder staring me in the face…a reminder to be strong, confident, persevere and have mental fortitude.
