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

At 3:40 PM yesterday, I felt my first twinge of Race Registration Anticipation. Not for any race in particular — I just had an out-of-the-blue thought that I might want to run a race sometime in the next year. Or […]

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

One major lesson I’ve learned this year is that no matter how hard you try — no matter how many pretty little To-Do lists you make — life doesn’t always follow your plan. In fact, more often than not, live […]

Thankful Things Thursday: It's Been A While

Date: October 25, 2012 at 8:27 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 51

Somewhere in between the madness of traveling, working and more working, I’ve seriously neglected the Thankful Things Thursday tradition. But the “holiday” lives on! And today I’m back with plenty of things to be grateful for. So without any pithy […]
