When I was trying to come up with a pithy title for this blog, I did some “inspirational research.” Basically, I looked up a ton of other blogs to see what their clever titles were, hoping something brilliant would pop […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Powering Through

Date: July 26, 2012 at 9:34 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 44

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 […]

Filling The Barn

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

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

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...

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

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

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 […]
