The Triumphant Return Of Thankful Things Thursday

Date: March 20, 2014 at 10:52 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 88

Big things are happening. Huge. On Tuesday, I ran to work! It was cold and wonderful. My first morning run! On Wednesday, I fully reacquainted myself with public transportation. I rode the subway three times and took the bus once. […]

It's Christmas Time In Contoocook

Date: December 24, 2013 at 1:37 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 33

It’s been a while! The excuse-truth for being anti-blogging: I’m Crohnsing pretty hard. I know I know I know I know. It’s the never-ending shitstorm, and that’s not even supposed to be a pun. Though the puns are practically unavoidable […]

Claustrophobia

For the past few weeks — months, maybe? — I’ve had this feeling I just can’t shake. It’s new to me and it’s weird, and I’m hoping writing it out might help. Let’s see where this ends up… I feel […]

The Plan

Date: October 24, 2013 at 8:25 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 31

My alarm went off at 5 AM today, as planned. And, as planned, I refused to snooze. I followed my usual “I’m up, but I’m moving slowly” in-bed routine: check email, scroll through Facebook, roll eyes at everything on Facebook, […]

In 10 Years

Date: January 9, 2013 at 9:31 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 52

If you’d asked me 10 years ago, “Hey, Alison (no one called me Ali then), where do you see yourself in 10 years?” I could have answered you pretty matter-of-factly. “I’ll be living in New York City, working as an […]

Thankful Things Thursday: The Little Things

Date: December 13, 2012 at 8:40 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 40

Good morning! Do you know what’s great about this week? Everything. I exaggerate. But only slightly. This week has dragged on and has felt never-ending, but it’s also been one of the most productive weeks I’ve had in a long […]

Thankful Things Thursday: I Am Myself Again

Date: September 13, 2012 at 9:24 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 51

It’s funny how much can change overnight. For so long, my life was following a crappy path. I spent hours every day in the bathroom. I was in fairly constant pain. My joints ached, I had spontaneous fevers and I […]

The Weekend I Stopped Hating Racing: The Bronx 10-Miler Recap

Date: September 10, 2012 at 7:38 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 90

All summer long (um, all year long?) I wanted to have a Super Awesome Weekend. You know, those weekends that are so fantastically stellar from start to finish, and on Sunday night you can’t even be depressed about the week […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Powering Through

Date: July 26, 2012 at 9:34 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 44

These next few weeks are all about stamina. On the running front, sure. I will need stamina to excel in my training. I like Excel spreadsheets. But also, I will need stamina to get through the crazy work schedule coming […]

Some Things Still Need To Change

Date: June 4, 2012 at 8:56 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 45

Monday! Wicked exciting. Maybe not. But it’s not the worst thing. To me, Monday always means a fresh start. I rarely begin anything — a training plan, a goal, a box of Oreos, whatever — unless it’s on a Monday. […]
