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 […]

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

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. […]

Hi. Are you new here? Allow me to brief you: I am Ali. My daily intention is to write about running. I friggin’ love running. Currently, however, I seem to be slightly injured. I have this hip thing, and this […]

Lessons I Learned From Living Alone

Date: April 3, 2012 at 9:52 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 67

Have I mentioned that I adore alliteration? Work at a peppy teen magazine for longer than about eight seconds and you, too, will find yourself frantically Googling “Adjectives That Start With J” as a deadline looms and catchy headlines are […]

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 […]

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 […]

I have never been a big Valentine’s Day person. (No, I did not just Google “Does Valentine’s Day have an apostrophe?”) Sure I can get on board with some Hallmark cards, chocolate and cheesy celebrations, why not? But every year […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Happy Thoughts On A Rainy Day

Date: January 12, 2012 at 9:19 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 48

I currently look like I got kicked, punched and then tossed underneath a rapidly flowing waterfall. When it rains in New York City, people get aggressive. The Upper East Side was like a war zone this morning. People get all […]
