My First Non-Training Saturday

Date: October 1, 2011 at 11:34 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 37

Last night, Brian and I went out for pasta. It’s become a Friday night ritual. Every Friday since our first date (the term “date” is a loose one — the first night we hung out I was wearing compression socks […]

Marathon Training: What Worked For Me

Date: September 30, 2011 at 8:25 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 47

I’m happy to dish out advice on plenty of things. In fact, I would like to write a book called How to Create the Perfect 16 Handles Concoction. (2 frozen yogurt flavors, heavy on the toppings, leave plenty of room […]

Pressure

Date: September 16, 2011 at 8:09 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 32

Confession: I didn’t go to work yesterday. All week — OK, all year? — I’ve been overly stressed about many things, most of which stem from my involvement with Run For The Rabbit. Training with JackRabbit and Coach Cane for […]

Fueling Fears

It’s no secret that I love — nay, adore — food. In my world, the basic food groups are trail mix, hummus, spinach, pasta, fish, pad thai, Brussels sprouts and 16 Handles. It’s a pretty solid diet. All those foods […]

Running At Night Is Hard

Date: August 23, 2011 at 6:48 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 36

After a semi-tough race on Sunday followed by a few blissful days of beaching and drinking in Fire Island, today I was forced to return to reality. Boo. Hiss. I should note that I am currently listening to “A Whole […]

Running With Coach Cane’s Crew

Date: August 19, 2011 at 8:02 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 26

I never run at night. I’m a morning girl. I’ll gladly wake up at 5 am to bang out a few miles while the sun comes up. But ask me to lace up my Brooks past 10 am and I’ll […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Snapping Out Of It

Date: August 18, 2011 at 8:23 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 35

You know how sometimes you wake up on the wrong side of the bed for no real reason and then you’re super cranky and can’t control your rage? That was me this morning. Oops. Maybe it was because I didn’t […]

Is This Real Life?

Date: July 31, 2011 at 8:08 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 29

Today was ridiculous in the best way possible. If not for the nagging twinge of pain in my right knee (nothing serious), I would be questioning whether or not I needed to wake up from a pretty nice dream. After […]

18 Miles

Date: July 30, 2011 at 11:47 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 33

Before I started training for the Hamptons Marathon, my seasoned runner friends warned me: “Marathon training takes over your life.” That warning never scared me. And now, with fewer than two months left until marathon day (September 24!), I can […]

Family On The Run

Date: July 17, 2011 at 2:02 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 18

Does that make sense? Family on the run? I’m not good at clever titles. I thought about calling this post “That Time My Family Came To NYC & We Enjoyed Some Binge Eating” but that didn’t have the same ring […]
