Date: January 13, 2012 at 8:43 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 47

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

I don’t know if you know this, but I think sweating is cool. While some people measure their years in how much they achieved, or in daylights or sunsets or midnights or cups of coffee (RENT? Anyone? No. OK.), I […]

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

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 […]

Ted Corbitt 15K Recap

Date: December 17, 2011 at 6:53 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 24

Lately, my relationship with racing has been a little complicated. We’ve had some great times, but we’ve also been through some rough patches. You see, racing and me, we want to love each other, but sometimes one of us wants […]

My Brain Is The Problem

Date: December 16, 2011 at 9:23 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 25

Remember when I ran the Las Vegas Half Marathon — and, uh, a handful of other races that didn’t go as planned this year — and I talked about how I had a really hard time during those last, oh, […]

10 Reasons To Love Winter Running

Date: December 13, 2011 at 9:29 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 107

“It’s too cold.” “The gym is warm. I’ll go there and run on the treadmill.” “It’s too dark in the morning…and at night. I don’t want to run in the dark.” “I can’t breathe when I run in the cold. […]
