I want to race. I want to approach a start line feeling like, as Coach Cane used to put it, a caged animal. I want to gut it out over the course of 3, 13.1 or 26.2 miles. I want […]

Date: April 9, 2012 at 9:36 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 39

Don’t do drugs. You don’t need them. Just run, and then you’ll be all high and stuff. I flew through this weekend in a slight funk, alternating between wicked fun times (spinning! packing! Home Depot!)… …and dramatic, whiny lows (um, […]

I really don’t want to be thankful today. I know, that’s not normal. I freakin’ love being thankful and grateful and being all “yay to the beauty of the world!” But today, I don’t feel normal. I feel like, in […]

Ali On The 'Roids
