If you’ve gotten this far, I guess you like my blog enough to want to know more about me. If you aren’t sure why I refer to myself as The T-Rex Runner, click here. I won’t go too much into detail, but here are some basics about me.
My name is Danielle. I live in a very small town in South Carolina, which I moved to after graduating from the University of Maryland and growing up in South Florida. I feel like a fish out of water here about 99% of the time.
I started this blog with the intention of documenting my quest to run a marathon in all 50 states before I turn 30 in December 2015. I’m on track to accomplish my goal in June 2015, and along the way, I’ve started writing about a lot more than just running. If you stick around for awhile, you’ll hear me talk about my 11-year struggle with anorexia and bulimia, my intense wanderlust, and all of the strange and mostly annoying things I do in an effort to torment my boyfriend on a daily basis.
Oh yeah, I have a boyfriend named AJ. We’ve been together for a few years now and I find him quite delightful, if occasionally awkward. I’m constantly bugging him to appear on video blogs or do an interview with me (because I think you all would find it very entertaining) but he says he would like to retain his status as a “mythical figure” on the blog – whatever that means.
I have a rescued Rottweiler named Rocket. He also goes by the name Higgins, or Baby Higgins. He is under the impression that he is a 10 pound lap dog, which is inaccurate. He is more like a 100 pound lap dog.
I love all beer, but especially craft beer. I try to go to a different local brewery everywhere I travel. Is reviewing beer a thing? That should be my job.
