New Goal: More Sleep

Date: June 26, 2012 at 9:17 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 59

So far I’m really digging this little Tuesday. It feels like fall. The weather in NYC is pretty much perfect. In fact, it’s perfect running weather. It seems fitting, then, that today I went for a run. How much did […]

This Time Feels Right

Date: June 25, 2012 at 9:14 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 36

As soon as I crossed the finish line at the Hamptons Marathon, I was ready to sign up for my second attempt at 26.2. I set my sights on the Eugene Marathon on April 29, but I didn’t fully commit […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Strangers Can Be So Nice

Date: June 21, 2012 at 9:31 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 65

Last night I attempted a Pilates class at my gym. I say “attempted” because I didn’t exactly “do” all the moves. I managed to wobble during every balance, tip over during every side plank and face-plant during the squat-thrust-down-dog-push-up-leg-curl move. […]

My Promises To You

Sometimes blogging is a really wonderful thing. I get to ramble on and on about running and Crohnsing and whatever’s on my mind. It’s cool having my own little place here on the magical Internet where I’m not confined by […]

Good morning! Today I have Marathon Training Brain, so that’s what we’re going to talk about. In December of last year, I finally “qualified” for the 2012 New York City Marathon. I ran nine New York Road Runners races, I […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Feeling Kind Of Cool

Date: June 14, 2012 at 9:27 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 59

For the past few weeks — OK, fine, months — I haven’t really been digging the whole Thankful Things Thursday. Last week I even considered bagging the whole “tradition” because it felt “tired and forced.” And sometimes, yeah, that’s true. […]

If I Ruled The World

Date: June 13, 2012 at 9:09 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 72

I know, it’s a scary thought. Sometimes when I run, I’m very focused on what I’m doing. I tune in to how my legs feel, how my hip feels, how my stomach feels, how my breathing feels, how my thigh […]
