I may just still be endorphin high, but I'm loving my new tattoo! Freshly inked (in a six hour session) by Greg Ross of Blue Rose Tattoo. Love the fantastical victorianesque design of steampunk clockwork gears with an ornate windup-key. Love the colors.
fyi: the number 46 on the key refers to the number of miles I completed in the 12 hour Delano Park ultramarathon.
Oh, and I finished Book #40 WHILE I was getting tattooed.
40)McDougall, Christopher. BORN TO RUN: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen. Knopf: 2009.
Excellent nonfiction. BORN TO RUN is part story, part how-to, part scientific look at the physiology and anthropology of running, as well as part history of ultramarathoning. It's a lot to pack into a book! Oh, and I may never look at Nike quite the same way again...
It's been a fine day. :)
