People | Rory Linkletter

Words and images by: Stephen Kersh Amidst a gaggle of runner-centric tattoos stampeding through another dang marathon-specific workout on Lake Mary Road in Flagstaff, Arizona, a red maple leaf flashes bright as it continues on its perpetual journey on Rory Linkletter’s thigh.
