Martin Fagan and the tats
Irish Olympian, NCAA All-American and marathoner, Martin Fagan, has a little bit of an addiction to tattooing his body. Some people run to the pay bills, Martin runs to pay for more tattoos. When Martin was in Austin for the 3M half-marathon (which he won and set a course record) he came by the Flotrack HQ and we took a look at his tattoos. This past weekend, Martin set the Irish National record in the half marathon at 1:00:57. The had stood for 21 years. He also led the first 10k of the race against Haile G and eventual winner Sammy Kitwara.
