Date: July 18, 2012 at 9:35 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 55

As much as running is an individual sport, apparently I cannot actually survive this activity solo. Instead, I require a team on stand-by at all times. I’ve successfully recruited perhaps the most integral member of the team: Coach Cane. With […]

Hi! How are you on this Tuesday morning? Good. Great. I’m psyched for you. Now, we could discuss one of two things today: The latest in my Crohn’s flare-up saga, including an update on how yesterday’s doctor appointment went. Running. […]

I've Been Thinking...

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: Working & Blogging From Home

Date: July 12, 2012 at 7:56 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 51

Last night I had a dream that I was running late to get somewhere. Then, back in real life, I got out of bed this morning, turned on the TV, and saw all this footage of Stonehenge. WTF is happening? […]

I Want To Know What It's Like

Date: July 11, 2012 at 9:11 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 43

I want to wake up in the morning, and I want to just run. I don’t want to spend an hour in the bathroom first. I don’t want to plan my route based on where I can find an open […]

A Bonus Piece Of Thankful

Date: July 6, 2012 at 9:18 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 41

A bonus piece of thankful? For the love of grammar, that is awful and makes no sense. But it’s Friday, and it’s my first official Summer Friday (my office closes at 1 PM on Fridays between July 4th and Labor […]

Those Two Monumental Moments

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.” […]

I Think I'm Figuring It Out

Date: June 1, 2012 at 8:45 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 60

Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit! It’s June! You may be aware that on the first day of every month, the first three words out of my morning breath-filled mouth are “Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit.” Apparently saying that brings you good luck for the […]

Whoa. Today is better than yesterday. How about that? Let’s talk about it in grateful form, because today is Thankful Things Thursday. Yes, happy holidays to you and yours. I’m thankful I feel a little better today. Will it last? […]

Body, We Need To Talk

Date: May 30, 2012 at 9:13 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 37

I was so optimistic after this weekend. No, I didn’t feel completely over this latest Crohn’s flare-up, but I was certain I was flying full-speed on the road to recovery. But then yesterday happened, and now I’m all, “WTF, body? […]
