I’m so excited because I have a few fun fitness-y things to look forward to in the next few weeks. First, I’m finally taking my first hot yoga class! Pure Yoga in NYC is offering free classes this weekend—Happy Thanksgiving, […]

A Bad Run

Date: November 17, 2010 at 10:26 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 7

Since I became a runner (It still feels weird calling myself a runner, and I obviously love it), I’ve had countless great runs. Many of those great runs have stuck in my mind—the first time my old roommate took me […]

Monday Surprise

Date: November 16, 2010 at 10:03 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 3

ABS isn’t necessarily a big “surprise” guy. So when I was planning a night of marathon gymming—Chisel, Spinning and Abs—he suggested I just do one class and then come home. When I said I really wanted to do Spinning, he […]

My Mexican Getaway

I’m baaaaack! And I missed blogging! Sadly there was no wireless access on the resort, and the one computadora in the biblioteca came with a hefty fee. Thanks but no thanks. Looking back now, the trip was a whirlwind. My […]

My Life With Crohn’s Disease

Every eight weeks, on a Wednesday morning, I go to St. Luke’s—Roosevelt Hospital in NYC to receive a Remicade infusion. The IV keeps my Crohn’s Disease at bay. Today was one of those Wednesdays. So I’ll start at the beginning […]

Let Christmas Shiiiine!

Bummer

Date: November 9, 2010 at 1:21 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 3

Sad face. So I wasn’t lucky enough to be one of the first 50 people to get into the 2011 NYC Marathon. There will be another lottery drawing in April, which of course feels decades away! Until then I’ll obviously […]

I’m In?

Date: November 8, 2010 at 6:31 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 3

We’ll have to wait and see! But after a very frustrating hour or so spent yelling at the computer and phone screens, I finally got this email: I’m nervous, excited and trying to be patient until tomorrow when they announce […]

Rainy Monday Morning

I have to get out the door, but wanted to document now that it’s going to be a great day. Why, you ask? I slept great. I passed out so hard last night that I never even got under the […]

NYC Marathon Sunday!

Date: November 7, 2010 at 9:04 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 6

What an exciting, inspirational day here in NYC. I woke up bright and early—loved that extra hour of sleep, thank you very much Daylight Savings Time!—to get a run in before Marathon Madness began. After yesterday’s 12-miler, I just wanted […]
