Three In A Row

Date: November 21, 2011 at 9:03 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 78

This morning I ran five perfect miles. The miles weren’t particularly speedy. It was a recovery run of sorts, and I averaged a 9:20 pace. The weather was nothing special, either. It wasn’t raining, but it wasn’t sunny, and the […]

Monday! Sometimes I wake up on a Monday morning and I’m all, “The weekend is over and I feel sad and life is soooo hard.” Today I woke up and thought, “It’s going to be an exceptional week.” I’ll tell […]

I Wish…

I woke up this morning and felt wide-awake when my alarm screamed at 5:00. The Steroids will do that to you — you don’t need to sleep much. My first thought was, “Yay! It’s already Thursday! Time to run!” But […]

New York City Marathon Weekend

Date: November 7, 2011 at 9:36 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 72

This weekend might go down in the books as one of my favorites ever. I don’t know what “the books” are or where they’re located, but in them, someday, it will say, “New York City Marathon Weekend 2011: One of […]

Racing Scares Me

Date: November 2, 2011 at 8:40 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 42

I have always said that I love running, but I don’t love racing. So why am I signed up for the Las Vegas Half Marathon again? And a handful of other races before the year is over? Racing is fun, […]
