About the T-Rex

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, and I live in Greenville, South Carolina with my husband, AJ, and our rescued Rottweiler, Rocket. We became foster parents in September 2015 and foster boys and girls ages 4-10.

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. Thanks to back surgery in April of 2014 and ongoing problems with my back, that didn’t end up happening, but I did accomplish my goal of running 50 marathons total (in 37 states).  I’ll be finishing up the final states with half marathons, which are much easier on my back. 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 husband on a daily basis.

I made a resolution two years ago to make my life more interesting every day, and I’ve been living that way every day since. If you love running, international (and domestic) adventures, snark, the great outdoors, and pictures of Rottweilers in costumes, this is the blog for you!
