Rise & Shine!

Date: January 22, 2011 at 8:35 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 5

Good morning! It’s 8:30 am on a Saturday morning. So why the heck am I awake, right? Well, I’ve got a date with the girls. And with this guy… (He just doesn’t know it yet) I’m headed to Equinox to […]

Frustrated? Go Front Row

Date: January 19, 2011 at 9:18 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 6

I’m not going to go into the details of my day. Ali on the Run is a happy place, and today frustrated the heck out of me. That being said, there were two things that got me out of my […]

It’s A Pink Skirt Kind Of Day

Date: January 19, 2011 at 9:07 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 9

Yesterday in New York City, everything just felt so blah. The morning weather prevented me from accomplishing my planned outdoor run. Then I totally bought into the gloominess of the day by wearing jeans and a sweater to work. Booo-ring. […]

Little Victories

Um, did anyone else’s workday fly by today? Maybe just mine, since I was out of the office last Friday and then we had yesterday off. My day was wonderfully productive, despite being sidelined twice by long meetings. (And despite […]

Bikram Spinning: “What You Just Did Isn’t Easy!”

Date: January 12, 2011 at 8:35 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 9

OK so it wasn’t really Bikram Spinning at the gym tonight — that actual class should be illegal, and I hope it doesn’t actually exist — but the A.C. wasn’t kicking in and I felt like I was melting. I […]

Snow-verloaded 2.0?

Date: January 11, 2011 at 8:45 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 10

New York City is freaking out. Apparently we’re supposed to get anywhere from 3 to 14 inches overnight. So everyone is panicking. I guess that’s good, since last time there was a snowstorm, NYC didn’t do a whole lot about […]

Proud

Date: January 11, 2011 at 9:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 17

Most mornings, I’m happy to hop out of bed at 5:30 am to squeeze in a run. It’s just how I like to start my day. I understand that willingly bundling up under three layers and run/skipping around ice patches […]

To Become a Road Runner…

Date: January 10, 2011 at 9:42 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 5

Today has been mostly — OK, totally — awesome. Why, you ask? I’ll tell you. In list form, of course. Because that’s how I roll. I slept in! I didn’t get out of bed until 6:30 am (ahem, that’s a […]

No More Chipotle…For Now

Date: January 6, 2011 at 8:37 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 4

First, thank you all for your wonderful responses to this morning’s Thankful Things Thursday post. I can’t wait to see what you all continue to come up with and share with me every week. Unrelated: my stomach has been kind […]

Don’t Be Mad…

Date: January 5, 2011 at 8:40 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 5

This morning, I asked you all for your input. I wanted you to decide my evening workout now that I have extended gym access. Would it be BodyArt, Spinning or Yoga? Your comments were unanimous. “Yoga, yoga, yoga,” you advised. […]
