    This isn't journalism per se, just a clip that was put on a FB page and that's supposed to be motivational, but the captions are incredibly clueless given that the guy went into the race as a co-WR holder and favorite:

    Since I rarely drink alcohol (like 1 beer per month), you can guess it was pretty low, as in 0.

    Love the tat talk. Don't have any but I love asking people about theirs.

    I got the tat on my 50th birthday. On my 100th birthday, if I can, I plan to walk into some tattoo parlor somewhere, and ask for a naked woman on my left shoulder. Those will be my only 2 tats - and I do mean tats in this sense.

    I am anti-tats, but I do know for a fact that if I had been an Olympian (ha!), I totally would have exactly that one! I saw it a dec-er (Hardee, I think) and thought 'that's cool'!

    Adding insult to injury, I just received my latest Duke Alumni magazine. In it, is a picture portfolio six Duke Tracksters/Fielders, full page pics of their TATTOOS !

    I think I am getting sick.....
