Thankful Things Thursday: Run Survival

Date: May 19, 2011 at 8:13 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 18

So far I’m not too impressed with Thursday. I was beyond exhausted when I woke up, my stomach is giving me hell and it took three subway transfers to get to the office. I could let myself be cranky. That […]

Black & White & Rainy All Over

Date: May 18, 2011 at 7:56 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 35

My body is hurting today! Turns out, marathon training — even in the early weeks — is kind of hard. After yesterday’s stellar run, I proceeded to sit at a desk all day. I prefer a more active recovery, but […]

Oh hello, Tuesday. First, thank you all so much for the creative, original lunch ideas yesterday. For the first time maybe ever, I’m excited to go grocery shopping and stock up on some fun lunch things. You rock. I am […]

I Actually Hate Talking About The Weather

Date: May 16, 2011 at 7:32 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 58

Hey hey hey! It’s raining in NYC — and it’s supposed to rain all week. So get ready for lots of “Oh my gosh, can you believe it’s still raining?” conversations in the elevator. People love talking about the weather. […]

Date: May 15, 2011 at 5:02 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 20

I am heartbroken that this weekend is almost over. It’s been a weekend I needed, though, filled with a tough race, some quality gym time, yummy food (Chinese for dinner, oh yes), a good amount of sleep and lots of […]

Healthy Kidney 10K Recap

Date: May 14, 2011 at 1:20 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 28

I ran a 10K in Central Park this morning. My stomach didn’t explode during the race. That’s good. I wore hot pink. That’s also good. I came out of the race with a new 10K PR. Definitely good, right? (Even […]

5 Fun Friday Things

Date: May 13, 2011 at 7:49 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 29

That is pretty much the most clever title I can come up with today: 5 Fun Friday Things. I guess I just like alliteration, and I’m admittedly not feeling very clever or creative today. Alliteration, admittedly… Clever, creative… Like I […]

Happy Thursday! I have a lot to be thankful for today, so let’s get right down to it! I’m thankful for my new, wonderfully fluffy, bright orange comforter. Have I not obsessed over this enough this week? I know, I […]

Not A Morning Gymmer

If you’ve been an Ali On The Run reader for more than a day (and if you haven’t, hi and welcome!), you know that I start my days running. I run in the morning because I love being outside. I […]

I Want To Marry Pure Yoga

Today has been stellar. Maybe it’s been a good day because I pushed myself hard during this morning’s run. Or maybe today has been good thanks to my delicious lunch pita. The fabulousness of the day definitely had to do […]
