I've Been Thinking...

Date: July 13, 2012 at 9:24 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 51

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: 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 […]

New Goal: More Sleep

Date: June 26, 2012 at 9:17 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 59

So far I’m really digging this little Tuesday. It feels like fall. The weather in NYC is pretty much perfect. In fact, it’s perfect running weather. It seems fitting, then, that today I went for a run. How much did […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Strangers Can Be So Nice

Date: June 21, 2012 at 9:31 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 65

Last night I attempted a Pilates class at my gym. I say “attempted” because I didn’t exactly “do” all the moves. I managed to wobble during every balance, tip over during every side plank and face-plant during the squat-thrust-down-dog-push-up-leg-curl move. […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Feeling Kind Of Cool

Date: June 14, 2012 at 9:27 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 59

For the past few weeks — OK, fine, months — I haven’t really been digging the whole Thankful Things Thursday. Last week I even considered bagging the whole “tradition” because it felt “tired and forced.” And sometimes, yeah, that’s true. […]

Those Two Monumental Moments

Date: June 12, 2012 at 9:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 60

There are always two exciting, monumental, OMG-so-encouraging milestones that happen as I’m coming back from a Crohn’s flare-up. When these things eventually occur, I’m all, “Oh Hell yeah, I’m back, I’m awesome, life is sweet, you can’t stop the beat.” […]

The Long-Awaited Effortless Run

You know how people talk about those really awesome, high-inducing runs? The ones where the “miles fly by” and “everything feels so OMG awesome the whole time?” The ones where their brain and legs are totally in sync with each […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Yoga Makes Me Feel Better

Date: June 7, 2012 at 9:27 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 68

Hi! Thursdays are great, do you know why? Because tomorrow is Friday. And then we get Saturday, and then Sunday. So if you have any complaints in life today, maybe forget them for a few minutes so we can all […]

On National Running Day

Date: June 6, 2012 at 9:13 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 55

I thought by the time June 6 rolled around this year, I would have profound, witty thoughts to share on National Running Day. Turns out, I really don’t. I love that National Running Day exists because runners are an interesting […]

Some Things Still Need To Change

Date: June 4, 2012 at 8:56 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 45

Monday! Wicked exciting. Maybe not. But it’s not the worst thing. To me, Monday always means a fresh start. I rarely begin anything — a training plan, a goal, a box of Oreos, whatever — unless it’s on a Monday. […]
