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 […]

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 […]

Happy Thursday! I’m not sure why, but I’m in an excellent mood today. Perfect, considering it’s Thursday, which means is the day of the fake Ali On The Run holiday, “Thankful Things Thursday.” Onward with the positivity! I’m thankful for […]

Coming Together, Falling Apart

My apartment is coming together really nicely! Though simultaneously my body is falling apart. I battled a sinus infection a few weeks ago, then got better just in time to run the National Half Marathon. Now I’m sick again, this […]
