There’s So Much More Good Than Bad

Date: October 18, 2011 at 8:20 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 63

I am a happy person. I think life is great. Fantastic, even. On any given day, there is crap in the world that makes me angry and pisses me off. There are so many little things that can get a […]

The Weekend That Taught Me How To Prioritize

Date: October 17, 2011 at 8:12 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 43

Hi! This weekend was everything I needed. I didn’t blog. I didn’t Tweet. If you posted something cool on Facebook, I know nothing about it. I never once checked my To Do list, or even thought about it, and I […]

Thankful Things Thursday: There Is A Good Puppy Photo In This Post

Date: October 13, 2011 at 7:53 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 72

Today has all the makings of a bad day — I woke up feeling miserable, I definitely didn’t get to run (again), there are no signs of nice weather in today’s forecast and I have a meeting at 11 that […]

A Super Fun Time With My Doctor

Date: October 12, 2011 at 10:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 85

[Insert sarcasm here.] I went to my doctor yesterday. You remember the guy: poor bedside manner, condescending, doesn’t think “people with Crohn’s disease should be runners.” He’s so great. So great, in fact, that I took a little visit to […]

What the Hell, Crohn’s?

Date: October 11, 2011 at 8:01 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 76

People, we have a problem. It’s called Crohn’s disease and it won’t go away. Let me apologize in advance for the nasty turn this post may take. I’m semi-angry. In the weeks leading up to the marathon, I felt great. […]

Today I Will Rest & Recharge

Date: October 10, 2011 at 11:00 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 39

My office is open today — apparently dancers don’t need to celebrate the fantastic Mr. Columbus — but I’m not at work. I didn’t get back to the city until very late last night. Thank you, northern-bound traffic on the […]

Army 10-Miler Recap

Date: October 9, 2011 at 6:51 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 31

I went into today’s Army 10-Miler race with very mixed feelings. I registered for the race at the insistence of my cousin, Jackie, who lives in Arlington, VA, just outside D.C. A few months ago she assured me that this […]

Not My Best Run

Date: October 7, 2011 at 8:16 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 71

Imagine this: It’s a perfect fall evening. You work all day then at 6:45 pm you lace up your Brooks Adrenalines and head for Central Park, where you join your running coach and one of his badass, race-winning triathletes for […]

Thankful Things Thursday: For The People Who Truly Get Me

Date: October 6, 2011 at 8:19 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 49

Hello. It’s a gorgeous fall day here in NYC and despite having no hot water in my apartment for roughly the 19th day in a row, I am managing to pull myself into a good mood. In case you’re wondering […]

Some Things Are Tougher Than A Marathon

Date: October 5, 2011 at 8:24 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 49

I thought, considering I trained for and ran a marathon not too long ago, that I was in good shape. I can run for four-plus hours, so I can do anything, right? Oh, Ali. So naive. And also a little […]
