Ironman tattoo sparks romance for KC woman

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A Kansas City woman may have found the love of her life all because of a tattoo.

Many athletes who complete an Ironman competition get a logo tattooed on them.

It’s that tattoo on a Seattle man that caught the eye of KC woman Anne Moyer in the Northwest for a training competition.  She then approached Scott Sharkey and the two got to talking.

“I think about a week later, I’m like, ‘You’re going to be sorry you ever gave me your number, but I have questions,” Moyer said.

Sharkey first served as a coach, but their relationship progressed.

He now calls KC home as he supports Anne’s dream of completing the competition. An Ironman includes a marathon, 112-mile bike ride and more than two miles of swimming.
