My New York City Marathon Training Plan

Date: July 18, 2016 at 1:14 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 45

Happy Monday and Happy 16 Weeks Until the New York City Marathon! Today officially kicks off New York City Marathon training for me. I like a 16-week plan because it’s not too long, but it still allows room for a little flexibility. I […]

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 […]

No Excuses—Play Like A Champion

Date: June 2, 2016 at 9:43 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 55

I woke up in a foul mood yesterday. You know when you have a plan for your day and then something immediately doesn’t go according to said plan, and it throws off your entire day and your plan and your life? God […]

Today marks my two-year November Project anniversary! It was two years ago that I showed up to my first November Project workout. It was “Bridge Day,” and I remember feeling on the brink of death for the duration of the workout, which involved running […]

It’s been more than 24 hours since I crossed the finish line at the 2016 Airbnb Brooklyn Half, and I’m still feeling that runner’s high. Yesterday was awesome. I’ve never been able to say that after the Brooklyn Half! Everything clicked […]

See You In Brooklyn

Date: May 20, 2016 at 10:55 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 10

Tomorrow, I’ll run the Airbnb Brooklyn Half for the third time. And in a weird turn of events, I’m feeling great about this race. I have a very meh history with the Brooklyn Half. I ran it in 2011 after eating […]

Ali Lately

Date: May 10, 2016 at 10:49 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 14

Sometimes I like to blog about important things, wordy things, and emotional things. Other times, I just like to be more mindless about it all, vomiting my words all over the internet. Today is one of those latter times. Here’s a […]

Running Lately

Date: April 19, 2016 at 8:07 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 20

I’ve mentioned in my last two race recaps that running hasn’t been a priority for me lately. That doesn’t mean I’ve abandoned my beloved activity altogether. I’m still running! But between the move and an ever-increasing workload (that’s a good thing!), […]

MORE/SHAPE Women's Half-Marathon Recap

Date: April 17, 2016 at 8:05 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 12

I ran the Shape Women’s Half-Marathon as a member of the media, so I was given a complimentary bib. No one told me I had to say good stuff about the race — or even write about it, actually — […]

Date: April 4, 2016 at 8:25 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 22

I don’t remember why I signed up to run the New York Road Runners Scotland Run 10K this year. I can’t recall when I signed up, I just know it ended up on my calendar somehow. I’m guessing it was after receiving […]
