"I chose this tattoo for many reasons -- I was, and always will be, a cross-country runner. Along with being an English teacher, I know that I want to be a coach. I also like that the wings are connected to mythology. They represent Hermes, the messenger with winged sandals. This way, I get to put running and English together -- two passions, one tattoo!"
