I Found That Loving Feeling

Date: January 11, 2013 at 8:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 30

It was only for a moment, but it’s not yet a fleeting thing. Last night, I planned to run. Really. I was going to leave work, head home, suit up and head out. But then, I lost the little bit […]

In 10 Years

Date: January 9, 2013 at 9:31 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 52

If you’d asked me 10 years ago, “Hey, Alison (no one called me Ali then), where do you see yourself in 10 years?” I could have answered you pretty matter-of-factly. “I’ll be living in New York City, working as an […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Kicking Off The New Year

Date: January 3, 2013 at 6:49 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 89

I am sick. I know. Wahhhhh! My life is the absolute worst. No. Not really. Not at all. I just have a cold, and I’m handling it supremely well. I did not scream for Brian six times last night asking […]

Thankful Things Thursday: The Magic Of The Holiday Season

Date: December 20, 2012 at 9:30 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 41

It’s been an emotional few days, huh? In the wake of the Newtown tragedy, I can’t decide if it feels trite to put on a peppy, thankful face (let’s be honest, my “thankful things” are hardly deep thoughts and are […]

Be Kind

Date: December 18, 2012 at 8:54 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 21

Zero Week

This morning was an awesome one for running here in NYC. It was warmer than it probably should be on December 10 — a sweet 46 degrees at 5 AM — and there was a crazy fog in the air […]

With One Month To Go

Date: November 26, 2012 at 9:04 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 50

Hi gobblers! I hope you had a nice, stress-free, full-bellied Thanksgiving. On the long weekend front, there’s not much for me to report. Instead of cramming eleventy billion “must do now” tasks into the three days I was in New […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Feel Good Friday Edition

Date: November 9, 2012 at 8:43 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 40

A day late. My bad. Can we still get grateful though? Because I’m feeling it now more than ever. Ever, I tell you! And a Thankful Things Thursday by any other name — Feel Good Friday, perhaps? — is just […]

From 4:13 To 3:51: My Manchester City Marathon Recap

Date: November 6, 2012 at 8:42 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 165

I spent 11 months in 2011 working to gain automatic entry to the New York City Marathon. I ran the requisite nine races — seriously burning out in the process — and volunteered at that year’s NYCM Expo. Finally, after […]

When Nothing Goes According To Plan

Date: November 5, 2012 at 8:36 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 126
