Assembling The Team

Date: July 18, 2012 at 9:35 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 55

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 […]

The Plan

Date: July 17, 2012 at 9:40 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 41

Hi! How are you on this Tuesday morning? Good. Great. I’m psyched for you. Now, we could discuss one of two things today: The latest in my Crohn’s flare-up saga, including an update on how yesterday’s doctor appointment went. Running. […]

I've Been Thinking...

Date: July 13, 2012 at 9:24 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 51

I am so freakin’ excited to be back at work today. After three days of working from home, I was starting to go a little stir crazy. I had left a semi-permanent (I guess that would make it…temporary) butt-dent in […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Working & Blogging From Home

Date: July 12, 2012 at 7:56 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 51

Last night I had a dream that I was running late to get somewhere. Then, back in real life, I got out of bed this morning, turned on the TV, and saw all this footage of Stonehenge. WTF is happening? […]

Ignorance Is Bliss

Date: July 9, 2012 at 8:45 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 61

You know how I know this weekend was good? I didn’t wear any makeup. I’m not a big makeup-wearer in general, but I do usually throw on a bit of please-hide-these-bags-under-my-eyes concealer or foundation or whatever it’s called, and my […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Let Freedom Ring...At The Beach

Date: July 5, 2012 at 8:59 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 41

Hello! I went running this morning. I ran six slow miles, and for each of those miles I had to make an urgent, awful bathroom stop. So great, right? And so instead of telling you about my sad little run […]

Break Time Is Over

Date: July 2, 2012 at 9:13 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 43

There is so much I want to talk about today. I made that bold, even though it seemed all-caps worthy. But all-caps implies yelling, and I thought maybe that was too aggressive for a Monday morning. Bolded words say, “This […]

New Goal: More Sleep

So far I’m really digging this little Tuesday. It feels like fall. The weather in NYC is pretty much perfect. In fact, it’s perfect running weather. It seems fitting, then, that today I went for a run. How much did […]

Marathon On My Mind

Date: June 18, 2012 at 9:31 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 58

Good morning! Today I have Marathon Training Brain, so that’s what we’re going to talk about. In December of last year, I finally “qualified” for the 2012 New York City Marathon. I ran nine New York Road Runners races, I […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Feeling Kind Of Cool

Date: June 14, 2012 at 9:27 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 59

For the past few weeks — OK, fine, months — I haven’t really been digging the whole Thankful Things Thursday. Last week I even considered bagging the whole “tradition” because it felt “tired and forced.” And sometimes, yeah, that’s true. […]
