Feeling Festive

Up until today, I hadn’t been really feeling the holidays. It’s not that I don’t want to be in the Christmas spirit. But it hasn’t snowed yet in NYC, and I can’t find any of my favorite holiday tunes since […]

Silly “Sweaters” and Lazy Sundays

Date: December 19, 2010 at 6:58 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 6

Last night, ABS and I were invited to an Ugly Christmas Sweater party. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a bit “over” this theme. Yes, it can be really fun. But we didn’t know the theme until the […]

Was Today Productive?

Not really. Hehe. But it’s OK. That being said, there’s not a whole lot to update you with. I ran 12+ miles this morning, feasted on a homemade pizza for lunch then ran some errands down in SoHo. After making […]

Wow, I had no idea I’d stir up such a great conversation with this morning’s “Lottery Fail” post. Thank you all for sharing your thoughts on running, racing and getting involved with a charity. I’m nowhere near as bummed out […]

3-Day Work Weeks

I’ll admit it — I haven’t worked a whole lot in December. Don’t get me wrong: When I’m in the office, I’m making my hours count. I work my booty off, I’m productive and I truly enjoy what I do. […]

First up, in case you missed it, here’s my guest post over at Leslie’s blog, And Her Little Dog Too. I wrote about “The Top 10 Worst Things That Can Happen During A Run” (and, of course, tackled how I […]

Santa, Lend Me Your Elves!

Oh what a wonderful day… Yes, I love my job. But wow. How sweet life could be if I could spend every day running, getting massages and running errands. Let’s talk a bit about what went down today, shall we? […]

Time to Crash

Today was one of those really busy workdays where all of a sudden you look at the clock and it’s 4 pm. Where does the time go?! Post-work workout was BodyArt with Bethany. I wasn’t feeling it tonight. I don’t […]

Yesterday was perfect. I woke up and conquered 11.4 miles in Central Park. The weather was phenomenal, it wasn’t too crowded and my stomach cooperated the whole time. Also, I saw Snoopy: Hehe. After my long run, ABS and I […]
