My first tattoo…

This year has held a lot of FIRSTS for me. The most memorable ones revolve around running.

This has been a hard year, running has given me an outlet for channeling personal pain. I know for a fact I’d be completely crazy if not for running.

I’ve wanted a tattoo for a while, but not just anything and not just on a whim. It needed to have meaning and importance.

I decided to tattoo 26.2 in roman numerals on my wrist. I ran my first marathon this year while being 26. But more than just running 26.2 miles, I’ve endured a lot of personal struggles while being 26. This year has been one of survival and endurance.

I just celebrated my 27th birthday and I’m turning a new leaf over. I’m growing up and I’m ready to live my life. So this tattoo not only represents what running has taught me but represents the person I’ve become through running.

Finished product.

I’m movin’ on
At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me
And I know there’s no guarantees, but I’m not alone
There comes a time in everyone’s life
When all you can see are the years passing by
And I have made up my mind that those days are gone
