It’s February. It’s cold. Blahbiddyblah. I don’t mind the cold too much when it comes to running — I don’t belong to a gym so I have no treadmill access, nor do I have treadmill patience, and there’s something so […]

My 2014 Game Changers

Date: January 2, 2015 at 9:40 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 39

Date: November 5, 2014 at 3:01 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 68

After last year’s nearly perfect New York City Marathon, I said I didn’t need to run the race again. Despite being mid-Crohn’s flare and having to make three ugly bathroom stops along the way, I paced myself beautifully and enjoyed […]
