Happy 12th Birthday, Allana

You radiate beauty from deep within your soul and you shine everywhere you go.

You’re beautiful and beautifully brilliant.

You’re kind and caring with a heart as big as the universe and soul as old as time.

You’re remarkably confident, I wish I had an ounce of your confidence when I was your age or even double your age.

You are going to do great things some day because you are already such a great little person, even though you are my height.

I love watching you grow into greatness.

 Happy 12th birthday, Allana.


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.
