I Wish…

Date: November 11, 2011 at 9:26 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 64

Today is 11/11/11 and that makes me giddy and hopeful. I’m a pretty practical person most of the time. To quote The Office: “I’m not superstitious, but I am a little stitious.” But growing up, I always made a wish […]

Happy Thursday! Today I present to you another round of being all giddy and thankful for the great things in life we don’t always acknowledge. It’s Thankful Things Thursday, and it’s a holiday because I say so. Onward! I’m thankful […]

The Perfect Pre-Marathon Weekend

Date: September 18, 2011 at 4:24 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 19

After yesterday’s race (and subsequent brunch), I returned to my apartment for a disappointingly cold shower and then very quickly morphed into Psycho Freakout Mode. Yes, Psycho Freakout Mode is an actual clinical condition. I know because I just diagnosed […]

Surprise Party Success In Boston

Hello. A few months ago, my amazingly smart sister-in-law, Michaela, passed the final part of her CPA exam. So when my brother Ryan emailed me about planning a surprise party in her honor — to celebrate not only her new […]

My Ideal Weekend In New Hampshire: Running, Biking, Eating, Swimming & Sleeping

Date: July 25, 2011 at 8:01 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 28

Sometimes I wake up on a Monday morning feeling sad. Monday means the weekend is over and the next weekend is a full five days away. Today, however, I woke up feeling fantastic. I feel rested. I feel excited about […]

Family On The Run

Date: July 17, 2011 at 2:02 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 18

Does that make sense? Family on the run? I’m not good at clever titles. I thought about calling this post “That Time My Family Came To NYC & We Enjoyed Some Binge Eating” but that didn’t have the same ring […]

New Yorker

Date: July 13, 2011 at 9:38 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 50

Although I’ve lived in New York City for almost four years, I definitely don’t consider myself a New Yorker. I feel like “New Yorker” is a sacred term — one reserved for people who were born and raised here, or […]

I Am Not Sick

Good morning! It’s a beautiful day in New York City — and it’s the first day of summer! I can think of no better way to start the day than with a Central Park run. But we’ll get back to […]

Healthy Kidney 10K Recap

Date: May 14, 2011 at 1:20 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 28

I ran a 10K in Central Park this morning. My stomach didn’t explode during the race. That’s good. I wore hot pink. That’s also good. I came out of the race with a new 10K PR. Definitely good, right? (Even […]

Getting High

Date: April 27, 2011 at 8:57 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 16

Everyone talks about that awesome, unbeatable runner’s high that you got from an especially long/fast/encouraging run. I rode my National Half Marathon high for weeks. People don’t really talk much about other kinds of fitness highs though. Note: I wish […]
