On Sunday, I ran my first race since November. On Monday, I watched (obsessed over) the Boston Marathon. Now, it’s Monday night, and I have hidden my debit card — which is new, so I have not yet memorized the […]

For the past two years, I wasn’t really into the “year end recap” thing. I cringed looking back on the two previous years, and wanted pretty desperately to just move forward. As I said time and time again, 2012 and […]

Haha. WednesDAY. So this blogging thing. Eesh. I’ve been not awesome about it, which is sad (probably only for me) because I’ve had plenty to share. I’m training for a marathon! I have a coach! I’m the healthiest I’ve been […]

What Goes Through My Head During A 20-Mile Run

Date: September 24, 2012 at 8:35 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 76

The scene: Saturday, Ali and Brian’s apartment. It is dark outside. 6 AM: My alarm goes off. Apparently I hit snooze. My bad. 6:40 AM: I wake up. I realize I didn’t hit snooze but rather hit “off.” It’s fine. […]

We’ll get to the giveaway part in a minute. Here’s a hint: It’s food. But first I’m going to tell you some stories about how I did not get taken off the injured list overnight. I hate waking up and […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Good Runs, Grippy Hangers & Gold Medals

Thankful Things Thursday: On Staying Positive
