Tyler says hi. At this time last week, I was a bit of a mess. I was Crohnsing hard, I couldn’t really eat and my night sweating had nothing to do with humidity. My fever climbed well into the 100-degree […]

Hi! How are you? Good. I’m glad. I hope your weekend was splendid. Mine was. I was in Charlotte, NC, watching my best friend get married! Along the way I experienced many “firsts.” Now I will tell you about them. […]

Hi. Are you new here? Allow me to brief you: I am Ali. My daily intention is to write about running. I friggin’ love running. Currently, however, I seem to be slightly injured. I have this hip thing, and this […]

Lessons I Learned From Living Alone

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 […]

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

Things I Love
