About Run DMT

In 2007, I discovered a passion for running.  In the beginning, I could barely run a 1/2 mile.  With the support of my running partners and friends, I stayed motivated and continued to pound the pavement.  Thanksgiving 2007, I ran my first 5K race, The Turkey Trot.

Since then, I have increased my distance and have become completely addicted to the adrenaline rush of races. My love of running has only continued to grow as well as my list races and running accomplishments. In 2013, I added “Marathon Maniac” and in October 2014, I ran my first charity race at the Chicago Marathon for #TeamDannyDid. On February I completed my tenth marathon at the Tenth Annual A1A Marathon and shortly after, I joined the Rock ‘N Roll Marathon Series #RockNBlog team.

Run DMT (an old school play on my initials) shares a healthy lifestyle of fitness, food and family fun from a Tampa Bay marathon mom on the run. Readers can experience my family life through family-friendly healthy recipes, beautiful photo journaling and well-written storytelling as well as relive my races and training runs through photo-rich recaps.

By following Run DMT,  readers will get a glimpse into the mad world of this marathon mom on the run who’s just trying maintain an easy pace between raising three kids (ages 13, 9 and 4) and races.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. It was so encouraging. I have found that I really like running as well and the c25k running plan has been so good. I can’t wait to run my first 5K soon. I also can’t wait to read about your first marathon experience. How neat that will be! God bless you in your endeavors.

    THose are such wonderful goals. You certainly can and will attain them if you just don’t stop moving forward. I learned in the ultra marathons that one foot in front of the other will take you as far as you want to go. Keep up the great work. Thank you very much for you great contribution to my blog today also. Your comment was wonderful.

    What a cool place! We are planning a big road trip to see my family in FL this winter, so I will have to add this to my list of potential stops. Thanks!

    Love the name! I have only very recently come to love running too. I’m still a walk/runner but am so excited to be on my way. I’ve always admired people that run and I’m turning into one of them!

    Hi Denise! You are AWESOME and your blog is full of love and positivity. I ran 3 miles the other day and it took me 52 minutes. LOL—

    I REFUSE to give up! Even if a turtle can beat me this week, I will keep on keeping on. THank you for always posting about your life and love. The Thanksgiving Platter is sooooo cute!!!! :)

    Hi! I found you through sevenclowncircus’ Wordful Wednesday and when reading your post here, I realized we have a lot in common! It sounds like you’re living in FL? Between the Goofy Run and the Gasparilla Run, it was a guess…..I don’t live there now, but I went to school in Tampa and was raised an hour and half north of there. :-) If you’re not from FL….disregard the last sentence….LOL. Anyway….I also would love to be a published children’s author one day. I do freelance for a local magazine here in Hawaii, so I reached my published piece in a magazine goal last year. :-) Anyway…thought I’d say hello since we seem to have a bit in common! Congrats on your newest addition!

    Great blog title! Gotta love a little old school. :)

    I love that you shared you stunk at running when you started. This is something I’ve been wanting to get serious about, and haven’t found the motivation, I guess. I can barely run around my block without looking like I’m having a heart attack. Thanks to my “30 things”, I gotta get movin’!

    Stopping by from TLB Tea Party. I’m an east coast FL mom(no oil yet-but hubby thinks it’s going to come).

    I agree with Adrienne I like that you shared the difficulty when you first began to run because I too can’t run 1/2 a mile without my shins and calfs given out but it’s truly inspirational to know that another woman struggled and has made it!

    Congrat’s! For accomplishing your goals :)

  14. Tara Eaker says:

  15. Scott says:

    Appropriate name indeed! And I was just thinking of Run DMC yesterday–what had become of them! Those were the days when rap was actually enjoyable, when it didn’t take itself too seriously, and didn’t perpetuate hatred and violence!

    Hi!! I am so happy I found your blog! I’m a mom of two little ones, and have become a faithful runner since becoming a mother. I ran all through high school and hated it- but now, it’s my form of therapy and escape. I’m a Tampa girl too. Please share your tips for surviving the summer heat and keeping these runs going. :) Eck!! Thanks, and again, I am such a fan.

    I am a mom of young twin girls and have been a runner for about 13 years. Love it!
    I used to run races, marathons, half-marathons and really enjoyed it. I tried a few half-marathons after the girls were born, but found it really difficult to find the time to train. I am able to run for about an hour 4 times a week right now and I feel that is a blessing.
    How do you do it?
