Are you ready to read a slightly grouchy post? Because that’s what you’re about to get. Well. I’ll start with some good stuff. How does that sound? Yesterday was an excellent day. The photo shoot with the Refine Method girls […]

On Mondays, I Make Lists

Date: November 14, 2011 at 8:53 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 49

Monday! Sometimes I wake up on a Monday morning and I’m all, “The weekend is over and I feel sad and life is soooo hard.” Today I woke up and thought, “It’s going to be an exceptional week.” I’ll tell […]

I Met Coach Cane’s Baby & I Went Running

I got a text yesterday at 4:50 pm from Molly at JackRabbit’s Union Square store alerting me that there was a special visitor at the store. I immediately grabbed my bag and ran out of the office. I’m sure my […]

I Wish…

Date: November 11, 2011 at 9:26 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 64

Today is 11/11/11 and that makes me giddy and hopeful. I’m a pretty practical person most of the time. To quote The Office: “I’m not superstitious, but I am a little stitious.” But growing up, I always made a wish […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Because A Sucky Stomach Can’t Bring Me Down

Date: November 10, 2011 at 9:43 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 44

Spring Marathon?

Date: November 9, 2011 at 9:18 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 109

Hi. How are you? I’m doing OK today. It seems as though my Crohn’s/colitis/emphysema/Anthrax is back to square one. Things are no good in stomach land. I’ve upped my Steroid dosage rather than continuing to taper down, so get excited […]

Being Pushed

Date: November 8, 2011 at 9:24 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 58

I like to think I’m hardcore. But sometimes, I need to be pushed. Not out of a plane, necessarily, but in general. Especially when it comes to running. I will always feel incredibly grateful for being able to train with […]

New York City Marathon Weekend

Date: November 7, 2011 at 9:36 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 72

This weekend might go down in the books as one of my favorites ever. I don’t know what “the books” are or where they’re located, but in them, someday, it will say, “New York City Marathon Weekend 2011: One of […]

Making Good Decisions

Date: November 4, 2011 at 8:27 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 47

I often hate making decisions. At work, I have no problem making on-the-spot calls and being quickly decisive. We function on a constant deadline, after all. But in my own life? I can be very indecisive. I over-think things and […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Good Food, Central Park Running & Living Alone

Happy Thursday! Today I present to you another round of being all giddy and thankful for the great things in life we don’t always acknowledge. It’s Thankful Things Thursday, and it’s a holiday because I say so. Onward! I’m thankful […]
