Thankful Things Thursday: Comeback Time

Date: June 30, 2011 at 8:03 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 39

Confession: For the past month, I’ve dreaded Thursdays. With that whole lame Crohn’s Disease thing coming at me full force, I found it difficult to push past how my body was feeling in an effort to think happy thoughts. But […]

An Ode To New Runners

Good morning! It’s Remicade Day today, which means I was up nice and early this morning to squeeze in 5.5 miles before I head to the hospital. The run went pretty well. I rushed to get out the door, which […]

On Running, Racing, Recovery & Rewards

Date: June 28, 2011 at 8:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 38

It’s been 48 hours since the Fairfield Half Marathon and my body is very slowly coming back to life. Very slowly. I felt really dehydrated all day yesterday so I was chugging water at my desk. That meant I was […]

How do you recap a race you kind of hated? Sigh. Well, let me clarify: I hated the course and I hated the weather. But there was plenty about yesterday’s Fairfield Half Marathon that I loved. I went into this […]

It’s been a long day. I was up at 4:30 am in order to get up to Connecticut for today’s Fairfield Half Marathon. The full recap will come tomorrow — because right now my priorities are frozen yogurt and sleep […]

‘Twas The Night Before Fairfield

Date: June 25, 2011 at 6:17 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 26

Tomorrow I will run 13.1 miles through Fairfield, CT. The way I see it, this race could go one of two ways: I wake up, feel amazing, say F-you Crohn’s and totally dominate the course. (I love this option.) I […]

I Need Lists To Function

Oh hey Friday. You snuck up on me there! It’s nice to see you. Today is going to be a bit of a crazy day (aren’t they all?), and on crazy days, I only function by way of lists. Here’s […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Yoga, Run, Braid

Date: June 23, 2011 at 8:43 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 45

Happy Thursday! I said it yesterday and I’ll say it again: This week has been a super speedy one. I can hardly even remember what happened on Monday. So let’s keep moving right along and get down to it: Today […]

Ali At The Doctor

Wednesday! When the heck did it become Wednesday? This week is flying. I have a good feeling about today — anybody else? Despite the fact that I hardly slept last night (I cannot for the life of me figure out […]

I Am Not Sick

Good morning! It’s a beautiful day in New York City — and it’s the first day of summer! I can think of no better way to start the day than with a Central Park run. But we’ll get back to […]
