Maybe Less Really Is More

Yesterday I asked if you all remember the 1990s, and apparently you do. (That will bode well for those of you who will be attending TriviaFest tomorrow night.) What a hilarious decade. Jelly shoes? Trolls? “Blossom!” Lisa Frank? All great […]

Well hello. Happy Tuesday. I’ll be straight with you this morning: The only two things I am capable of thinking about of discussing are marathon training and Thursday’s Run For The Rabbit event. I have a one track mind this […]

Good morning! Today is Monday. I know some people dread Mondays. The weekend is over, life is so sad, blah blah whine. I don’t mind Mondays though. Is the weekend over? Yes, yes it is. But was the weekend awesome? […]

Hello from the highway. I’m headed back to NYC on the lovely Hamptons Jitney right now. It’s this nice little bus where they bring you snacks and bottled water. You may be thinking, “Oh hey, cool, Ali, did you enjoy […]

When August 1 hit, everyone was all, “OMG, it’s already August, I can’t believe it, summer is over, I’m crying sad tears, boo end of summer, wah wah wah.” I do not feel that way. I’m a little surprised that […]

I Love Food

I have no complaints today. Actually, that’s not true. I have one. I was woken up this morning not by an alarm, not by the sun, and not even by a rumbling stomach. I woke up because my toe hurt. […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Being Tired But Perky

I’m so sleepy. Turns out, averaging 5 hours of sleep a night will catch up with you. But who cares that I’m tired? I mean really. A former boss once shared an article with me called “No One Cares How […]

Everything’s Better With Friends

If I take a nap under my desk today, do you think anyone will notice? Probably. But don’t you think it’ll start some cool trend? Maybe people wouldn’t look at me and be like, “OMG, Ali is asleep under her […]

A Kick In The Butt

I told myself I would get more sleep this week. So far: Fail. Really big fail. I’m running on 4 hours of sleep and I’m going to go ahead and say it was totally worth it. Did I was my […]

Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit! (Did you say it this morning? I did!) Happy August! July was pretty amazing and it’ll be a tough month to top, but I’ve got a great feeling about this week and about the month ahead. If […]
