Date: January 30, 2012 at 4:28 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 65

Good morning! Ali On The Run looks a little different today, right? The blog makeover is still a work in progress, but many hours were spent over the weekend moving this little blog to actually being self-hosted, and doing the […]

Hello! If you were one of the lucky ones who got to enjoy a three-day weekend, welcome back! I hope you took advantage of that extra day off and did something awesome, like went skydiving, or slept past 8 am. […]

Just about every week, I get an email or Facebook message from Coach Cane or Mrs. Coach Cane. On Thursday nights, Coach Cane holds group runs with his City Coach team. The group is stocked with world-class triathletes who win […]

Joe Kleinerman 10K Recap

Date: January 8, 2012 at 9:56 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 39

I’ve never liked the 10K distance. It’s too far to sprint, but it’s not quite as long or rewarding to me as the half marathon. I also haven’t loved racing recently. And yet, thanks to a lot of peer pressure, […]

Date: January 4, 2012 at 9:08 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 60

Yes, I’m still talking about New Year’s Resolutions. I’d rather talk about that than the weather. Did you hear? It’s cold out today. Weird, since it’s winter and stuff… I still ran this morning, despite the brisk wind I could […]

Measuring My Year In Sweat

Date: January 3, 2012 at 9:12 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 32

Date: December 22, 2011 at 9:19 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 38

It seemed like practically everyone on the subway this morning had big bags filled with wrapped gifts and massive suitcases in tow. When I say “in tow” I mean “thanks for running over my big toe with your giant bag, […]

Q & A

Date: December 20, 2011 at 9:21 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 40

You know what phrase kind of skeeves me out? “Burning questions.” I don’t know why. I just think it’s a little gross. I have a friend who shudders whenever she hears the phrase “reared its ugly head.” Brianne, I hope […]

My Friends Make Me Feel Festive

Date: December 19, 2011 at 9:07 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 39

You know what’s important in life? Chocolate. Good drinks. Laughing. Also, and maybe most importantly, great friends. Even better? Great friends with chocolate who make you laugh while drinking good cocktails. And that pretty much sums up my Sunday. Yesterday […]
