Is This Real Life?

Date: July 31, 2011 at 8:08 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 29

Today was ridiculous in the best way possible. If not for the nagging twinge of pain in my right knee (nothing serious), I would be questioning whether or not I needed to wake up from a pretty nice dream. After […]

18 Miles

Before I started training for the Hamptons Marathon, my seasoned runner friends warned me: “Marathon training takes over your life.” That warning never scared me. And now, with fewer than two months left until marathon day (September 24!), I can […]

I slept in a full 2.5 hours past my alarm this morning. Oops. Apparently I was tired. And now I’m going to take a tap class. Check back later. I have a feeling it’s going to be an interesting day.

Oh heeeeey. Today, as you know, I bring you Thankful Things Thursday. I have nothing pithy to say to kick this off, so let’s just bang it out. That’s what she said. BOOM. I’m thankful my knee isn’t hurting today. […]

Today we’re going to talk about puppies. You know why? Because it’s Wednesday. And who gets excited about Wednesday? But first, a few other things… As you may recall, I went for a run yesterday morning. I did 6.5 miles, […]

There’s lots to be shared today so I’m getting right down to business… (If you wear a denim shirt, you can say things like “let’s get down to business.” I just decided that.) My workday flew by yesterday. That happens […]

My Ideal Weekend In New Hampshire: Running, Biking, Eating, Swimming & Sleeping

Date: July 25, 2011 at 8:01 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 28

Sometimes I wake up on a Monday morning feeling sad. Monday means the weekend is over and the next weekend is a full five days away. Today, however, I woke up feeling fantastic. I feel rested. I feel excited about […]

Sweet 16

I did it! This morning, I made 16 miles my bitch. OK, that’s not totally true. In fact, those 16 miles sort of made me their bitch. But I got through those miles and ended today’s run — a new […]

Today is Thursday. It is Thankful Things Thursday. That means we will be thankful for things that we may otherwise dismiss every other day of the week. I am hungover and tired, so let’s get right to it, shall we? […]
