I Am Not Running The Eugene Marathon

Date: March 19, 2012 at 9:33 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 101

For three years, I woke up every single day excited about running. It was always something I looked forward to. Days without a run-induced sweat just weren’t as rewarding as run days. Often times, I would ride one runner’s high […]

Night Runners Deserve All The Credit

Date: March 16, 2012 at 9:21 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 67

One of the questions I get all the time is, “Where do you get your legwarmers?” Another frequently asked thing is, “How do you wake up so early to run every day?” The truthful answer is that I have always […]

I Did A Tempo Run Today

Date: March 13, 2012 at 9:29 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 26

I’m moving quite slowly this morning. Normally my commute to work takes about 35–40 minutes door-to-door, depending on how cooperative the downtown 4/5 trains decide to be. Usually they are “delayed momentarily because of train traffic ahead. Please be patient.” […]

Uncharacteristic Things I Did This Weekend

Date: March 12, 2012 at 9:26 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 53

This weekend was wonderful in all the weirdest ways. Did I do all my usual things, like running and eventually showering and eating a lot? Yes, yes I did. But I also did many other things that are a bit […]

I Ran. Twice!

Date: March 9, 2012 at 9:02 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 51

For the past six days, I couldn’t eat. I barely slept. I didn’t even think about running. But yesterday? Oh sweet, beautiful yesterday. Yesterday I ate. I slept. And yes, I ran. Let’s talk about the running first, because that’s […]

Starting My Day With Speed

Date: February 28, 2012 at 5:44 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 25

Greetings from the west coast! I’m in sunny-but-not-super-warm Los Angeles until Friday for some work things, and even though the weather here is comparable to the crap you’re dealing with back in New York, I refuse to complain, because these […]

The Weekend Run Report: My First 50-Mile Week!

Date: February 27, 2012 at 9:28 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 65

On the running front, this weekend was spectacular. On all other fronts, it was great as well. But let’s focus on the running, because I am better at discussing 18 miles of fun than I am at describing the flavors […]

My 18-Mile Mentality

Date: February 24, 2012 at 9:18 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 74

Tomorrow will not be my first time attempting an 18-mile run. I did one 18-miler during Hamptons training, and it went really well. I feel like 18 is a solid distance. It’s far and it’s challenging, but on marathon day, […]

A Super Happy 7-Mile Morning

Date: February 22, 2012 at 9:34 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 50

Helloooooooo! Question: Did someone put some crack in my “granola bar” this morning? Or perhaps you mixed my “morning cocktail” (sink water) with Absinthe or something? I don’t know what’s happening, or what I’m on, but I’m in a wildly […]

Deep Thoughts & Tough Love

Date: February 21, 2012 at 9:21 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 48

You know I’m not really going to have actual “deep thoughts” that are groundbreaking in this post, right? I just don’t want your expectations to be very high. Good morning! This weekend wrapped itself up pretty perfectly. Yeah, Saturday’s run […]
