All summer long (um, all year long?) I wanted to have a Super Awesome Weekend. You know, those weekends that are so fantastically stellar from start to finish, and on Sunday night you can’t even be depressed about the week […]

My Return To Optimism

Date: September 4, 2012 at 9:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 52

I remember going for a run in New Jersey on July 4th of this year. I was on a mini-vacation with friends and my stomach felt off. Still, I tried to run with my speedy lady friends as best I […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Keeping On

Date: August 23, 2012 at 9:09 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 48

Monday was a rock-bottom day for me. While it wasn’t the worst day I’ve ever had physically, on the emotional side it was definitely among the toughest I can remember. I cannot ever remember a time in my life when […]

Thankful Things Thursday: For The Good Days

Date: August 16, 2012 at 7:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 34

I had huge plans for today. I was going to tell you about how I’d just had three mostly great-feeling days in a row, and I was going to tell you about how I went running this morning and stuff. […]

A Tale Of Two Runs

Date: August 1, 2012 at 9:27 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 46

Yesterday was kind of a rough day for me. Nothing particularly tragic happened, but I felt awful all day, work was sheer madness and I was feeling very overwhelmed. I skipped my morning run in favor of some extra sleep, […]

These next few weeks are all about stamina. On the running front, sure. I will need stamina to excel in my training. I like Excel spreadsheets. But also, I will need stamina to get through the crazy work schedule coming […]

No News Is Great News

I wasn’t going to blog today. Again. Not long ago, I made a promise that if I had nothing to say, I’d keep my mouth shut. Or I’d stop my fingers from typing. Whatever. But then I realized: It’s kind […]

Date: July 23, 2012 at 9:29 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 38

As I tapered for the Hamptons Marathon last year, many people kept repeating the same phrase to me: The hay is in the barn. Personally, I think this phrase is stupid. Hay? Barns? How are these things related to marathon […]

Assembling The Team

As much as running is an individual sport, apparently I cannot actually survive this activity solo. Instead, I require a team on stand-by at all times. I’ve successfully recruited perhaps the most integral member of the team: Coach Cane. With […]
