Meaning: This is not just the first ink on his body; it is an inspiration ink. The tattoo was done by the Tattoo Artist Eric from New Vision Tattoo, Gainesville, GA.

“Exactly. On my left leg, I have that. I only add a line if I break my PR. It looks like someone’s sketchbook. But I haven’t broken a PR in my last dozen marathons, so it’s in desperate need of an update. I only get it when I earn that update.”
