Last weekend while Dr. John and I were celebrating our birthdays another stalwart member of the CA Cruisers was off running a marathon. John Creel (74) completed the Missoula Montana Marathon in a very respectable 4:34 for 2nd place in his age group. Missoula was his 10th state! 50 state fever runs strong in our little group.
As usual I started off the week with a rest day. I took advantage of the free time to go pick up my birthday present.
This is about an hour afterward and it is still wrapped in cellophane. It is on my left calf. I've toyed with the idea of getting a tattoo for at least 10 years. I hesitated mostly because I couldn't commit to a design, a tattoo is pretty permanent after all. This is a custom design bringing together some of my favorite elements.
