Thankful Things Thursday: On Staying Positive

Date: October 20, 2011 at 8:27 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 53

Hello there. It kind of feels like this entire week has been Thankful Things Thursday-ish. Every day I’ve felt compelled to push aside the negative, annoying things — remember, the Crohn’s/colitis/dysentery plague I’m fighting off — and focus solely on […]

My First Non-Training Saturday

Date: October 1, 2011 at 11:34 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 37

Last night, Brian and I went out for pasta. It’s become a Friday night ritual. Every Friday since our first date (the term “date” is a loose one — the first night we hung out I was wearing compression socks […]

What Marathon Training Has Taught Me

Date: September 21, 2011 at 8:47 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 52

I don’t know if I’ll like running a marathon. 26.2 miles might be too much for me. I plan to find out on Saturday. But I do know that I have loved training for this marathon. Many people may disagree. […]

Pressure

Date: September 16, 2011 at 8:09 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 32

Confession: I didn’t go to work yesterday. All week — OK, all year? — I’ve been overly stressed about many things, most of which stem from my involvement with Run For The Rabbit. Training with JackRabbit and Coach Cane for […]

Noteworthy Numbers

Date: September 9, 2011 at 8:12 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 43

I’ve got numbers on the brain today. For example, 10:30. That’s what time I left the office last night. I wasn’t thrilled, but I can’t complain too much. My job rarely requires me to stay at the office past 5:30ish, […]

Ali On Wheels

Date: August 30, 2011 at 8:19 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 39

Yesterday I went roller skating. Today I am somehow alive to tell about it. But let’s backtrack, because before I went roller skating, I stuffed my face with cupcakes. You see, I didn’t have to work yesterday due to the […]

You Can Have A Good Day Today

Date: August 17, 2011 at 8:03 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 47

Warning: Overly optimistic and peppy post ahead. Yesterday I wrote about how I’m so happy to be in the midst of marathon training. My speedy, rainy morning run wasn’t the only good thing about yesterday. In fact, right before bed […]

A Kick In The Butt

Date: August 2, 2011 at 8:17 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 62

I told myself I would get more sleep this week. So far: Fail. Really big fail. I’m running on 4 hours of sleep and I’m going to go ahead and say it was totally worth it. Did I was my […]

Is This Real Life?

Date: July 31, 2011 at 8:08 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 29

Today was ridiculous in the best way possible. If not for the nagging twinge of pain in my right knee (nothing serious), I would be questioning whether or not I needed to wake up from a pretty nice dream. After […]

Sweet 16

Date: July 22, 2011 at 10:08 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 73

I did it! This morning, I made 16 miles my bitch. OK, that’s not totally true. In fact, those 16 miles sort of made me their bitch. But I got through those miles and ended today’s run — a new […]
