Last weekend, my running buddy Megan wrote a blog post about how she was being all crazy and reckless and stuff. The gist? She ran 16 miles without much breakfast, spent plenty of time throughout the weekend drinking and didn’t […]

Date: February 9, 2012 at 9:34 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 44

Good morning! I missed you yesterday. I was home sick from work, and in true Ali fashion I hardly used my sick day to actually rest. Sometimes I’m so dumb. Instead of laying down and eating grilled cheese sandwiches (my […]

Every weekend I say to myself, “Hey, self, you should blog on Saturday or Sunday or something, that way you don’t have to spend Monday just recapping your weekend, because that is probably not interesting for many people.” And then […]

Good morning! Ali On The Run looks a little different today, right? The blog makeover is still a work in progress, but many hours were spent over the weekend moving this little blog to actually being self-hosted, and doing the […]

Just about every week, I get an email or Facebook message from Coach Cane or Mrs. Coach Cane. On Thursday nights, Coach Cane holds group runs with his City Coach team. The group is stocked with world-class triathletes who win […]

Joe Kleinerman 10K Recap

Date: January 8, 2012 at 9:56 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 39

I’ve never liked the 10K distance. It’s too far to sprint, but it’s not quite as long or rewarding to me as the half marathon. I also haven’t loved racing recently. And yet, thanks to a lot of peer pressure, […]
