Farewell, February

Date: February 28, 2011 at 9:03 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 17

Sure it’s a short month, but I can’t believe we’re already headed into March. Totally fine with that, since I equate March with the start of spring! I watched some of the Academy Awards last night. I’m not a huge […]

Gotta Get Away

After yesterday’s 12-miler, it was so nice to spend the rest of the weekend relaxing. It was even more of a treat to do so out of NYC! Lauren and I drove up to her mom’s house in Westchester for […]

The 12 That Kicked My Butt

Well, I did it: I ran the 12 miles I was planning to run. But let me tell you, at no point was it easy. Maybe it’s because I didn’t sleep much last night, and it’s most certainly because I […]

Happy Friday! You may have noticed that I didn’t post anything last night. That’s because I told myself never to drink and blog. Wine and Chinese food was a priority last night — so I abandoned the Internet. But I’m […]

Good morning! During my run this morning (4 chilly miles), I realized it was Thursday. Here at Ali On The Run, that means it’s Thankful Things Thursday. As you regular readers know, I haven’t been having the best week. I’ve […]

An Ode To Lady Friends

Kind Words, Sore Calves
