my biggest fan

for many people (me included) running, in addition to being good for your health (minus the knees... stupid knees...), is a way to clear the mind. some might even say they use running as a form of therapy in one way or another. i even have a tshirt from nike that pretty much sums it up:(although running has gotten pretty expensive over the years.... what is the going rate for therapy these days? pretty sure an entry fee, new shoes, gear, etc has started to add up...)
but anyway, for those of you who know me, running is and has been a big part of my life for many years now. but there is something else that has also become a big (6'7", no pun intended) part of my life. ill try not to bore you with all the silly, romantic details, but long story short my friend melissa introduced me to her best friend, tyler, in 2006. she and i had been talking one day and the following conversation occurred...
BlueRaineSP: Ty just said this to me: "i mean how many girls do you know that would love to spend a day by getting up in the AM, playing a round of golf, and then grab a 30 rack, go sit by the pool, drink beers, and watch sports?"
BlueRaineSP: and my answer was... I bet my friend Danielle would love that hahaha
danhoops22: you can tell him that might be my dream date as long as i can drive the golf cart
um, does she know me or what?! he is and has always been extremely supportive of my running adventures... although not always interested in coming with me to run, he will on occasion (literally) drag himself out of bed to join in on some early morning runs... i think its a sort of love hate relationship hes got with running.

hes crazy and fun, he makes me smile, shows up at my races ready to cheer me on, and i am thankful to have him in my life :)


  1. I hate to say this, but that description given by Tyler fits 2 people - Danielle and my mother. Draw your own conclussions...


  2. What more could a girl ask for? :)
