Something kind of awesome happened at the gym today. Well, a few awesome things I guess. First of all, it wasn’t nearly as crowded as I thought it would be. There was great “New Year’s” energy at the gym, and […]

We Left the House!

Date: December 28, 2010 at 4:35 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 2

Ali the Elf

Fun With Foam

Date: December 21, 2010 at 8:55 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 6

Wow. How did I go 25 years without using a foam roller? And how did I survive training for three 1/2 marathons without falling in love with this awesomely simple device? Let’s backtrack, shall we? After running the NYC 1/2 […]

A REFINED Start to My Weekend

OK, I know. My pun is super lame. Obviously the point I’m getting to is that tonight I took my second Refine Method class with Brynn Jinnett! First, let me tell you a bit about my day, because it was […]

Ali & ABS vs. The Snooze Button

Date: December 16, 2010 at 9:05 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 10

ABS and I both set our alarms for 5:45 am (give or take) each morning. If I’m hoping to do a longer run, it’s 5:30. A shorter run calls for 6 am. But lately neither of us have been racing […]
