06/08/2013 at 16:33

Photo please SD. Yes, I know we've seen M-dot tats before, but we've never seen yours Ironsossige   

Mine is designed, I just need to get my arse up to Edinburgh to have it done


No, it's not going on my arse


Hearing the tales of our IMUK arfleets has made me all iron-emotional all over again. Want to do another one. NOW. 

Swam 1500m yesterday and ran 5 miles today. Not so easy to fit sessions in with the kids at home, but I'm sticking with my plan to just keep ticking over for the holidays and get stuck right in once they're back to school

I went out for a long lunch today ...  but I think I did enough on Sunday to last me the week so I let myself off

All this tattoo talk has me thinking.  Do people normally commerate multiple IM finishes with additions to their original ink jobs?

Morning. Wide awake at 5:30am. Still buzzing from Sunday 

My tat is just a simple red M Dot with a black outline. I can't put a pic up here as i'm a bit of a div trying to do that  Pic will be on my blog which i'm halfway through writing, maybe finished tonight.

Good running and swimming Nursey, good eating Melds 

i've seen a few IM tats where people have added the events they have done under the M Dot iY.

I don't have any ink, I'm a wuss.

Nice steady 2k swim this morning in 42 minutes.....inspired by the efforts of those on Sunday.

Good swimming Holgs

IY, I think it's Rosey who has very cool design with the M-dot and the flags of all the countries they were done in (someone please correct me if I'm wrong)

Name change alert -- I'm DimTimTris, but now I'm IronScribe, thanks to a suggestion from Holgs a few months ago.  Cos I'm a writer, and now I'm an IRONMAN!

What an AMAZING day.  Thanks for support everyone.  Chuffed with my 14:12.  Still smiling ear to ear, still hurting, and I'll do a full race report soon.


I did think about changing mine to Matron, since I think I've earned a promotion.  And there's an 'o' to put a dot after, and an 'm' just waiting for a dot....................

This thread could do with a Matron, although we do have a witch.

 What if I wear a dress and a wig would that work or should we stick with the scottish matron?

Do you have a link to the pic? Sounds like a cool idea.

This is his avatar that gives you the general idea of his tat, he has a few more flags than that though.
