Hills of Torture

Complete honesty…..

Last night’s run kicked my butt and good. After decorating a friend’s house, who was returning from their first half ironman in Rhode Island, Susan and I headed off for a 5 mile run. We thought to save time we would run in Jac’s neighborhood. Now Greenville is full of hills but I now think Jac’s neighborhood has the majority of them. Seriously, every street was a hill and the heat only beat you down even more. After 4 or so miles we ended the torture and headed to the car. Let's see....after 4 days (26 miles running, 29 miles biking) my legs felt trashed.

Tonight I have a 3 miler and it will be an easy one. Hitting the trails this weekend for 16 miles.

So at long last I am posting a some pictures of my tattoo that I got in Sedonia, Az. on vacation a few weeks ago. Hope it was worth the wait!!
Trying to be brave before the pain begins...

If you could only see my face... i was such a wimp

So does anyone know what this means? There WILL BE a prize involved for the correct guess :)

C'mon everyone loves hills...don't they? Nice four day stretch leading to a 45 mile week, that'll work for a solid base.

Hmm let me think about the tat', could it be either:

"the next person to ask me what does it mean is really going to get it!"

or

"Badass Mama!"

or

"relentless forward motion"

Gotta Run? LMAO!

I bet it's really something dirty. Seriously, it's always the people you LEAST expect that do the most craziest shiz! :P

I've got two guesses for what your ink says:

1) If They Don't Have Chocolate in Heaven, I'm not Going

2) I love hills!

I'm fairly certain it's #1, I win! Send me a prize!

"If you can read this you're standing too close inside my personal bubble so BACK OFF!"

Kevin said...

Nice TAT! Could it be Gotta Run?

Amanda said...

Hmm I'm going with...
"Crazy Runner"
Or maybe "Born to Run"

Ok fine I have no idea.

OK, I'm going through the ten thousand or so Chinese symbols and should have this figured out before the weekend!

Everyone is wrong. She is obviously expressing her love for me in the most noticeable location.

I think is say I am strong or something about strength!!!!

cindy said...

Does it have something to do with your boys?

I like it...looks cool :)

Wes said...

Ultra runner? Long distance runner? Run like the wind? It doesn't mean anything? ROFL!!!

Journey to a Centum said...

OK, my research is complete...

From what I can tell it says (drum roll) "Travel"

What do I win?

BTW Robin - I'll be seeing your old buddy Dr. Dave Horton up at the White River 50 Miler here in Washington in about 8 days from now. I know you are a huge fan of his. Any special messages you would like me to pass on to him?

The tattoo looks great. Nice job on the runs too. Enjoy the trails this weekend.

Kevin said...
