Date: October 29, 2012 at 9:41 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 24

Hey storm troopers! In true “the week before the New York  City Marathon” fashion (remember the freak Halloween Snowtober thing last year?), there’s a heck of a storm blazing through the area. Hurricane Sandy is here, and she’s crazy! But […]

Thankful Things Thursday: I Love Sweat-Wicking Apparel & Sitting On The Subway

Date: March 22, 2012 at 9:04 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 70

Thankful Things Thursday always seems to come around when we need it most, doesn’t it? I have spent the past two days cooped up in my apartment with little contact with the outside world. OK, that’s a lie. I Tweeted […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Rest & Recovery

Date: March 8, 2012 at 8:59 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 33

The road to recovery is proving to be a long one. I really thought I was going to sleep like a champion last night and wake up feeling fully rested and ready to rock this day. That wasn’t the case. […]

Things I Love

Date: February 14, 2012 at 9:38 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 43

I have never been a big Valentine’s Day person. (No, I did not just Google “Does Valentine’s Day have an apostrophe?”) Sure I can get on board with some Hallmark cards, chocolate and cheesy celebrations, why not? But every year […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Happy Holidays!

Date: December 22, 2011 at 9:19 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 38

It seemed like practically everyone on the subway this morning had big bags filled with wrapped gifts and massive suitcases in tow. When I say “in tow” I mean “thanks for running over my big toe with your giant bag, […]

My Las Vegas Half Marathon Playlist

Date: November 30, 2011 at 9:03 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 59

The scene: Ali’s apartment. 5 am Wednesday morning. The window is open, letting a brisk breeze into the bedroom. (I say “bedroom” as if there’s more than one room in my apartment, but let’s get real here, it’s a studio, […]

Visualization & My Race Day Playlist

Date: September 20, 2011 at 7:57 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 59

I always thought visualization was a B.S. technique. The first time I took a real yoga class, the instructor told us to close our eyes and imagine we were in a field filled with pixie dust. Clearly the A-hole in […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Bono Is My Friend

Date: July 21, 2011 at 8:28 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 31

Today is Thursday. It is Thankful Things Thursday. That means we will be thankful for things that we may otherwise dismiss every other day of the week. I am hungover and tired, so let’s get right to it, shall we? […]

I Wish I Would Have Known…

Friday! It’s here! Thank God. I’d love to say I’m looking forward to a low key, relaxing weekend, but that’s hardly the case. I’m running the Brooklyn Half Marathon tomorrow! I’ve never done this race before and I’m excited to […]

Getting High

Date: April 27, 2011 at 8:57 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 16

Everyone talks about that awesome, unbeatable runner’s high that you got from an especially long/fast/encouraging run. I rode my National Half Marathon high for weeks. People don’t really talk much about other kinds of fitness highs though. Note: I wish […]
