My Little Gem

Find out how this…



…became this here.




From start to finish, Denise is Run DMT, a Tampa Bay marathon mom on the run trying to maintain an easy pace through it all between races and raising three beautiful, brilliant children (ages 13, 9, 4). In 2007, I discovered a passion for running and in February 2015, I completed my tenth marathon, however, I continue to train for a variety of races and triathlons. In my spare time, I founded Tampa Bay Bloggers, a hyperlocal blogging network.

    We live in an amazing world, don’t we? When I was growing up, I lived in eastern NC where we didn’t have any kind of rocks, but my grandpa lived in western NC and found lots of them in his garden. I still have several bags full of rocks, gems, and arrowheads that he set aside for me. Thanks for sharing this – I will have to take my boys there sometime!

    That is the coolest place ever! I want to go! My grandpa was a rockhound so growing up I would always bring him pails of rocks to sift through. We would find some great stuff together and he would polish them up for me. I always looked forward to Christmas and birthdays because he gave the best handmade jewelery as presents.
