My Longest Run

Date: April 30, 2011 at 1:09 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 28

So this is my life now… Staying in on Friday nights, eating lots of food. Waking up early on Saturday mornings. Running for what seems like most of the day on Saturday. Maybe showering. Then plopping my butt on the […]

Royal Friday

Date: April 29, 2011 at 8:09 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 32

Writing a blog about my life seems so silly when there are royal lives and weddings to obsess over! I didn’t think I cared that much about the Royal Wedding, but I definitely got sucked in this morning. Let’s go […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Exciting Opportunities

Date: April 28, 2011 at 8:10 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 24

Happy Thursday! I’ll be honest, I’m in kind of a crappy mood at the moment. It’ll pass, because it’s all fueled from morning commute issues: I left the apartment late, the first train I got on was packed and had […]

Getting High

Date: April 27, 2011 at 8:57 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 16

Everyone talks about that awesome, unbeatable runner’s high that you got from an especially long/fast/encouraging run. I rode my National Half Marathon high for weeks. People don’t really talk much about other kinds of fitness highs though. Note: I wish […]

I Want A Medal

Date: April 27, 2011 at 7:46 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 40

It’s no secret that I love medals. I love getting them at the end of races, and I’m very disappointed that my next half marathon — the Brooklyn Half in May — doesn’t give medals to its finishers. (Though I […]

Mac & Cheese Is The Best Dinner

Today was another stressful one. My work To Do list is looking pretty good. My life To Do list is another story. Highlights of my post-work day included… Making time for strength training. I left work with enough time before […]

Under Where?

Date: April 26, 2011 at 7:51 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 36

Good morning! I didn’t sleep very well last night. Now, I pride myself on my stellar hydration skills. I drink a lot of water during the day, I hydrate when I’m at the gym and I basically just love water. […]

Short Shorts Shopping Spree

Date: April 25, 2011 at 8:24 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 22

Monday = done. Go team. I think I may have forgotten to breathe today. It was one of those crazy busy days where 4 pm comes way too soon and you have a panic attack because there aren’t enough hours […]

Give Me Your Marathon Advice

Date: April 25, 2011 at 7:49 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 28

Good morning! I can’t believe I’m already back at the office. This weekend felt like it lasted about two seconds. In case you unplugged for the weekend, here’s what you missed in Ali On The Run land: I announced that […]

Easter Sunday

Date: April 24, 2011 at 6:24 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 16
