Pressure

Date: September 16, 2011 at 8:09 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 32

Confession: I didn’t go to work yesterday. All week — OK, all year? — I’ve been overly stressed about many things, most of which stem from my involvement with Run For The Rabbit. Training with JackRabbit and Coach Cane for […]

“Just” 12 Miles

Date: July 16, 2011 at 10:33 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 23

Weekend! It’s here! I was so happy to leave work yesterday right at 1:30 pm. I definitely could have stuck around the office all day — there’s always plenty to be done — but I purposely made lunch plans for […]

PDR

PDR = Personal Distance Record. Done. I am thrilled to report that I successfully ran 15.5 miles this morning. It’s the longest I’ve ever run and everything went perfectly. Let me take you back to the beginning. Well. Let me […]

Mini 10K Recap

Date: June 12, 2011 at 11:59 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 56

I didn’t PR at yesterday’s Mini 10K, but it was a successful race by so many other standards. Marathon training is quickly teaching me that there are more ways to measure a race than by your finish time. Here’s how […]

It’s Friday, and that’s just the first reason today is going to be a stellar day leading into a phenomenal weekend. Positivity, people. Embrace it. This week went by really quickly for me. It was productive, it included some great […]

Brooklyn Half Marathon Recap

Date: May 21, 2011 at 6:19 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 59

I wish I could tell you all that today’s race was perfect and wonderful and that I have a shiny new PR. Sorry. That’s not the recap you’re getting. Today’s race was my roughest one yet — but rest assured, […]

I Wish I Would Have Known…

Date: May 20, 2011 at 7:52 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 28

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 […]

Healthy Kidney 10K Recap

Date: May 14, 2011 at 1:20 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 28

I ran a 10K in Central Park this morning. My stomach didn’t explode during the race. That’s good. I wore hot pink. That’s also good. I came out of the race with a new 10K PR. Definitely good, right? (Even […]

5 Fun Friday Things

Date: May 13, 2011 at 7:49 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 29

That is pretty much the most clever title I can come up with today: 5 Fun Friday Things. I guess I just like alliteration, and I’m admittedly not feeling very clever or creative today. Alliteration, admittedly… Clever, creative… Like I […]

Good morning! I can’t believe I’m already back at the office. This weekend felt like it lasted about two seconds. In case you unplugged for the weekend, here’s what you missed in Ali On The Run land: I announced that […]
