Break Time Is Over

Date: July 2, 2012 at 9:13 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 43

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 […]

Monday! Wicked exciting. Maybe not. But it’s not the worst thing. To me, Monday always means a fresh start. I rarely begin anything — a training plan, a goal, a box of Oreos, whatever — unless it’s on a Monday. […]

Body, We Need To Talk

I was so optimistic after this weekend. No, I didn’t feel completely over this latest Crohn’s flare-up, but I was certain I was flying full-speed on the road to recovery. But then yesterday happened, and now I’m all, “WTF, body? […]
