Do you know what I want so badly right now? I want to use my damn mango soap. Back in June, I was interviewed by Women’s Running magazine (no, I don’t know why they wanted to talk to me, either […]

Thankful Things Thursday: It Gets Better

Date: August 9, 2012 at 9:26 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 40

That’s what I keep telling myself. When things suck, it’s because they’re eventually going to be awesome again. For a very long time, I had no complaints in life. These days, I have quite a few, most of which revolve […]

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

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 […]
