Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5K Recap

Date: November 6, 2017 at 6:03 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 22

Saturday was the best day I’ve had in months. In fact, it may have been the best day I’ve had since this same weekend last year. I’d been enjoying a pretty good two-week stretch. Before that, things had been rough. […]

2017 Airbnb Brooklyn Half Recap

Date: May 21, 2017 at 9:49 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 5

I ran the Airbnb Brooklyn Half Marathon this weekend! Previous recaps: 2016, 2015, 2011 I made it to the start line and the finish line, and checked out pretty much every porta-potty in between. By the numbers, it was my […]

New Jersey Half Marathon Recap

Date: April 30, 2017 at 9:34 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 15

I ran the New Jersey Half Marathon this weekend and it was great. At least, that’s how I feel about it 10 hours later. I’m all runner’s high-ed now (and exhausted and delirious and insatiably hungry), but the race was actually tough at times. […]

Stevens Cooperative School 5K Recap

Date: April 24, 2017 at 9:10 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 15

Man, just as soon as I say I feel like a “lazy runner” and that I’m kind of meh about running and am just enjoying it and don’t feel a fire, I go and run a teeny tiny 5K and […]

Cranford Cougar Dash 5K Recap

Date: April 2, 2017 at 7:09 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 14

I said it last year, and I’ll say it again today: I love racing 5Ks. They’re short and fast and fun and the minute you’re ready to barf, you’re across the finish line — and at that point, it’s probably […]

I Was A Guest On I'll Have Another With Lindsey Hein!

Date: November 28, 2016 at 5:12 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 15

Hello! How was your Thanksgiving? Important question: What’s your favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner? I like traditional bread stuffing with gravy on it. I also like buttered dinner rolls (smothered in gravy), and whatever’s for dessert (smothered in chocolate). This […]

New York City Marathon 2016 Recap

Date: November 7, 2016 at 6:32 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 59

Yesterday was the best day ever. The past two and a half months have included many not-so-best days ever. So I just wanted a day. I wanted one day to run the New York City Marathon, because I knew that […]

The Inaugural Brooklyn Mile Recap

Date: August 16, 2016 at 11:51 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 10

On Sunday, I ran my first-ever mile race — the inaugural Brooklyn Mile! I was irrationally nervous about this race all week. Every time I would go on the race page, I would get a knot in my stomach — […]

NYRR Team Championships 2016 Recap

Date: August 3, 2016 at 10:36 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 6

I ran the NYRR Team Championships race on Saturday. The short: It was very hot, it was very humid, and I did not run my best, most well-executed race. I feel meh about it. I’m not necessarily disappointed, but I do […]

Party With Purpose 5K Recap

Date: July 13, 2016 at 9:11 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 13

I love racing! I love racing short distances! Before yesterday, I had only raced three 5Ks, each a year or more apart. (Turkey Trots FTW.) I know we all (maybe?) get hyped up on marathons and half-marathons and long, endurance-y […]
