Joe Kleinerman 10K Recap

Date: January 8, 2012 at 9:56 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 39

I’ve never liked the 10K distance. It’s too far to sprint, but it’s not quite as long or rewarding to me as the half marathon. I also haven’t loved racing recently. And yet, thanks to a lot of peer pressure, […]

Ted Corbitt 15K Recap

Lately, my relationship with racing has been a little complicated. We’ve had some great times, but we’ve also been through some rough patches. You see, racing and me, we want to love each other, but sometimes one of us wants […]

Race to Deliver Recap

Date: November 20, 2011 at 8:04 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 44

On Friday I declared that my goal for today’s 4-mile race was to run sub-8:15 miles the entire time. So I did that. And then I PR’d. I didn’t really have many expectations for the Race to Deliver, which was […]

My Upcoming Race Goals

Date: November 18, 2011 at 9:12 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 74

All I want to do in life is talk about running and make lists and goals. Yesterday on my way to get Remicade, I snagged a seat on the crosstown bus and started typing out my 2012 Resolutions. I’m pretty […]

My First Non-Training Saturday

Last night, Brian and I went out for pasta. It’s become a Friday night ritual. Every Friday since our first date (the term “date” is a loose one — the first night we hung out I was wearing compression socks […]

Marathon Training: What Worked For Me

Date: September 30, 2011 at 8:25 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 47

I’m happy to dish out advice on plenty of things. In fact, I would like to write a book called How to Create the Perfect 16 Handles Concoction. (2 frozen yogurt flavors, heavy on the toppings, leave plenty of room […]

Pressure

Date: September 16, 2011 at 8:09 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 32

Confession: I didn’t go to work yesterday. All week — OK, all year? — I’ve been overly stressed about many things, most of which stem from my involvement with Run For The Rabbit. Training with JackRabbit and Coach Cane for […]

“Just” 12 Miles

Date: July 16, 2011 at 10:33 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 23

Weekend! It’s here! I was so happy to leave work yesterday right at 1:30 pm. I definitely could have stuck around the office all day — there’s always plenty to be done — but I purposely made lunch plans for […]

PDR

PDR = Personal Distance Record. Done. I am thrilled to report that I successfully ran 15.5 miles this morning. It’s the longest I’ve ever run and everything went perfectly. Let me take you back to the beginning. Well. Let me […]

Mini 10K Recap

Date: June 12, 2011 at 11:59 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 56

I didn’t PR at yesterday’s Mini 10K, but it was a successful race by so many other standards. Marathon training is quickly teaching me that there are more ways to measure a race than by your finish time. Here’s how […]
