Lessons I Learned From Living Alone

Date: April 3, 2012 at 9:52 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 67

Have I mentioned that I adore alliteration? Work at a peppy teen magazine for longer than about eight seconds and you, too, will find yourself frantically Googling “Adjectives That Start With J” as a deadline looms and catchy headlines are […]

I Ran. Twice!

Date: March 9, 2012 at 9:02 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 51

For the past six days, I couldn’t eat. I barely slept. I didn’t even think about running. But yesterday? Oh sweet, beautiful yesterday. Yesterday I ate. I slept. And yes, I ran. Let’s talk about the running first, because that’s […]

Guess what I did today? I took a shower. I put on makeup. I blow-dried my hair. I went to work. In yoga pants, but still. I think it counts. I’m striving for a return to normalcy today, even though […]

My 18-Mile Mentality

Date: February 24, 2012 at 9:18 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 74

Tomorrow will not be my first time attempting an 18-mile run. I did one 18-miler during Hamptons training, and it went really well. I feel like 18 is a solid distance. It’s far and it’s challenging, but on marathon day, […]

Thankful Things Thursday: I Refuse To Be Injured

Date: February 16, 2012 at 9:39 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 48

Happy Thursday to you. I’ve been slacking on the blogging front a bit lately because sometimes life just gets in the way. Yesterday, for example, I decided it was more important to lay in a hotel bed for an extra […]

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: I Am Dizzy But I Am Happy

Date: February 9, 2012 at 9:34 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 44

Good morning! I missed you yesterday. I was home sick from work, and in true Ali fashion I hardly used my sick day to actually rest. Sometimes I’m so dumb. Instead of laying down and eating grilled cheese sandwiches (my […]

10 Great Things That Happened This Weekend

Date: February 6, 2012 at 2:42 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 39

Every weekend I say to myself, “Hey, self, you should blog on Saturday or Sunday or something, that way you don’t have to spend Monday just recapping your weekend, because that is probably not interesting for many people.” And then […]

My 2012 New Year’s Resolutions

Date: January 1, 2012 at 7:17 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 78

Have you heard? It’s no longer 2011. We have officially entered 2012 territory, and so far I’d say the new year is off to a kickin’ start, wouldn’t you agree? Brian and I expertly executed our “get the heck out […]
