 Making a Splash


Living life as a mom on the run between races and raising three beautiful, brilliant children (ages 11, 7, 2). Before a blissful life as a SAHM, I taught elementary school for 7 years. In 2007, I discovered a passion for running. I'm currently training for a fourth marathon as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. In my spare time, I am the lead organizer for the Tampa Bay Bloggers on Facebook. I'm currently training for two marathons as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. From start to finish, I'm a mom on the run trying maintain an easy pace through it all.

    She’s so brave. I never had the guts to jump off the diving board when I was younger. Still don’t.

    • Run DMT says:

      This was a HUGE milestone for Allana! She is terrified of heights, but she really wanted to jump off the diving board. Somehow my timid little one found the courage to be brave. I was so proud of her! You can see by her expressions that she just loved it and was so proud of herself too.

    Great pool shots. I remember being that age and scared to death to jump. It wasn’t so much the height as it was the sheer volume of water that would end up in my nose if I forgot to hold it!

    Cute swimsuit. My DD2 is a fish but hates swim team, so she just swims for fun. She loves those swim shirts, they save her shoulders. Now she just burns on her eyelids, poor kid. Come see my WW today!
