Starting My Day With Speed

Date: February 28, 2012 at 5:44 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 25

Greetings from the west coast! I’m in sunny-but-not-super-warm Los Angeles until Friday for some work things, and even though the weather here is comparable to the crap you’re dealing with back in New York, I refuse to complain, because these […]

The Weekend Run Report: My First 50-Mile Week!

Date: February 27, 2012 at 9:28 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 65

On the running front, this weekend was spectacular. On all other fronts, it was great as well. But let’s focus on the running, because I am better at discussing 18 miles of fun than I am at describing the flavors […]

My 18-Mile Mentality

Date: February 24, 2012 at 9:18 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 74

Tomorrow will not be my first time attempting an 18-mile run. I did one 18-miler during Hamptons training, and it went really well. I feel like 18 is a solid distance. It’s far and it’s challenging, but on marathon day, […]

It’s Thursday! Be thankful! It’s Thursday! Get psyched! My energy these past few days is off the charts. This morning I actually woke up one minute before my alarm was supposed to go off and felt refreshed and ready to […]

A Super Happy 7-Mile Morning

Date: February 22, 2012 at 9:34 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 50

Helloooooooo! Question: Did someone put some crack in my “granola bar” this morning? Or perhaps you mixed my “morning cocktail” (sink water) with Absinthe or something? I don’t know what’s happening, or what I’m on, but I’m in a wildly […]

Deep Thoughts & Tough Love

Date: February 21, 2012 at 9:21 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 48

You know I’m not really going to have actual “deep thoughts” that are groundbreaking in this post, right? I just don’t want your expectations to be very high. Good morning! This weekend wrapped itself up pretty perfectly. Yeah, Saturday’s run […]

14 Sucky Miles & Many Mistakes

Date: February 20, 2012 at 10:23 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 45

Yeah that’s right, Saturday’s long run was sucky. Since I started getting into distance running, each weekend brings an exciting challenge. Whether I’m training for a marathon or a half marathon, I look forward to my Saturday run, because it’s […]

Reminder: Life Is Not Bad & I Am Not Injured

Date: February 17, 2012 at 9:30 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 44

Last night after work, I dragged myself to a yoga class at my gym. I debated whether or not to get all yogafied (evil red squiggly line, stop trying to tell me that’s not a word, because it is) for […]

Thankful Things Thursday: I Refuse To Be Injured

Date: February 16, 2012 at 9:39 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 48

Happy Thursday to you. I’ve been slacking on the blogging front a bit lately because sometimes life just gets in the way. Yesterday, for example, I decided it was more important to lay in a hotel bed for an extra […]

Things I Love

Date: February 14, 2012 at 9:38 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 43

I have never been a big Valentine’s Day person. (No, I did not just Google “Does Valentine’s Day have an apostrophe?”) Sure I can get on board with some Hallmark cards, chocolate and cheesy celebrations, why not? But every year […]
