Missed the Boat

When I saw this year’s Gasparilla Distance Classic Marathon shirt, it made me sad all over again to have missed the boat on Tampa’s very last marathon.




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.

    Sorry that you missed out on a race you wanted to run…the good thing — there are more in other places. I hope you get back to it soon. It’s a blessing to be able to do what we love. :) Happy WW!

    (((Hugs))) I’ve never run a marathon, but I can relate to the frustration that comes from not being able to do something that you’re wanting so desperately to do. :(

    You’ll be back to running marathons before you know it! You might just have to travel a little farther to get there…

    Just found your blog through a comment you left on Feels Like Chaos. What a great space! I’m new to blogging and 1/2 marathon running so I was pumped to find you! I’m just beginning training for my first 1/2 marathon at the end of May- any tips?!!! I’ve written two posts about it so far (1/2 marathon monday) on my blog…if you want to see what I’m up too- though I don’t really feel like i know what I’m doing!! Cheers from one mommy runner to another!
