Date: September 2, 2011 at 8:36 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 53

Since late April, I’ve been training for the Hamptons Marathon. For a long time, that marathon seemed so far away. I focused my energy each week on my weekday runs and my weekend long run. I never really thought much […]

During this morning’s semi-rough run (8 miles, two bathroom stops), I kept thinking about the fact that is not only the first day of September, it’s also Thankful Things Thursday. I cursed myself for creating this little “holiday” and was […]

I talk to runners all the time who are “afraid” of running with other people. And you see, I can relate: I used to be one of those runners. When I started running in 2008, I lived with a runner. […]

You know how sometimes you wake up on the wrong side of the bed for no real reason and then you’re super cranky and can’t control your rage? That was me this morning. Oops. Maybe it was because I didn’t […]

When Did Running Take Over My Life?

Date: August 16, 2011 at 8:04 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 72

One year ago, I loved running. But that’s it. I loved it, but I wasn’t super attached or addicted to it. Running was something I did and something I enjoyed. I ran the New York City Half Marathon in March […]

Lessons I Learned This Weekend in D.C.

Date: August 15, 2011 at 8:10 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 37

I’m a little shocked I survived the BoltBus ride back to NYC yesterday. The trip took an hour and a half longer than it should have, probably due to the fact that the bus was being violently pelted by raindrops […]
