So that guy you met on the run with the M-dot tattoo? Chessyman was his first? I don't know . . . And a 4:15 marathon is pretty stout.

Kind of crazy to get the tat before the accomplishment. To each their own I guess.

Whenever someone comes into my store to buy a sticker (13.1, 26.2, 70.3, 140.6) I always jokingly ask them to provide their finishers medal or a time print out. You would be amazed at the people who say that they are not doing the race until next weekend or sometime in the future. Sigh. just sigh.

Thank you everyone. Thank you for the well-wishes for my father. I really appreciate that. He is feeling better than he has in years. Losing 20 lbs. helps a lot.
