Happy 15th Birthday, Allana




Your dad and I had no idea when we chose your name that your initials would become such an integral part you.


ART is so much more than a hobbie. It’s who you are at your core and I love that about you.


I love this beautifully complicated journey you are on to discover yourself and your passion.


You have a profound understanding of the community and the world around you which makes your wise beyond your years.

You see beauty in the world around you.

You’re our painfully shy wallflower, but you have such courage and confidence deep within you.

You’re kind, compassionate and morphing into this amazing young woman.


But don’t go getting a big head or grow up too quickly on us.


Stay my sweet pumpkin baby a little while longer.


I love you.

Happy 15th 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.
