I Have A Great Feeling About Today

Date: July 12, 2011 at 8:13 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 47

It’s a good day. Who’s with me? You can complain about the heat all you want, but I know I’m not going to let a little upper lip sweat during my morning commute bring me down. What? You don’t get […]

This will be my last “I’m having the best time ever in Florida” post. I promise. I have to go back to NYC on a very early flight tomorrow. The trip has been pretty great. Today was a total work […]

Orlando Day 3: Universal Studios & Margaritaville

Date: July 5, 2011 at 6:15 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 18

I’m sure these updates are getting a little boring. I’m still in Orlando. I’m still waking up early and going running. My alarm went off at 5 am today so I could cover six Coach Cane-prescribed miles. Of course, at […]

Date: June 28, 2011 at 8:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 38

It’s been 48 hours since the Fairfield Half Marathon and my body is very slowly coming back to life. Very slowly. I felt really dehydrated all day yesterday so I was chugging water at my desk. That meant I was […]

I woke up at the blissfully late hour of 7:30 this morning — and I woke up in a big bed in Charlotte, NC! My trip is off to a great start. I worked from home yesterday, which was far […]

What You Do When You Go To Fire Island

Date: June 6, 2011 at 8:18 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 26

I’m back. I’m not happy about being back. Spending three glorious days in Fire Island was exactly what I’ve been needing. I relaxed. I napped (a lot). I ate delicious food. I ran. It was three days of pure bliss […]

Good morning! I’m pleased to report that I’m feeling good today. I got a solid 5 hours of sleep (I know, I know, not enough — but it was good, air conditioned sleep) and woke up today rested and ready […]

Memorial Day Weekend 2011

Date: May 30, 2011 at 5:07 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 22

Um…Can every weekend be a long weekend? Everything about the past few days has been perfect. Since we last caught up, I’ve been to 16 Handles… I’ve been to Brooklyn… …and — surprise, Mom! — I’ve been to New Hampshire. […]

The sun is shining. I woke up smiling. Summer is almost here. It’s Thursday. I don’t know how today can possibly be a bad day. Hopefully you all feel the same. Before we get down to business, let me just […]

Today has been stellar. Maybe it’s been a good day because I pushed myself hard during this morning’s run. Or maybe today has been good thanks to my delicious lunch pita. The fabulousness of the day definitely had to do […]
