Thankful Things Thursday: On Staying Positive

Date: October 20, 2011 at 8:27 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 53

Hello there. It kind of feels like this entire week has been Thankful Things Thursday-ish. Every day I’ve felt compelled to push aside the negative, annoying things — remember, the Crohn’s/colitis/dysentery plague I’m fighting off — and focus solely on […]

Ali On Wheels

Date: August 30, 2011 at 8:19 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 39

Yesterday I went roller skating. Today I am somehow alive to tell about it. But let’s backtrack, because before I went roller skating, I stuffed my face with cupcakes. You see, I didn’t have to work yesterday due to the […]

The Run Before The Storm

Date: August 27, 2011 at 12:06 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 52

I really thought today’s run was going to suck. That’s a good attitude to have, right? Coach Cane had me running 14 miles: the first 10 slower than my marathon goal pace (semi-success!) and the final four faster than my […]

I’m Marathon Obsessed

When August 1 hit, everyone was all, “OMG, it’s already August, I can’t believe it, summer is over, I’m crying sad tears, boo end of summer, wah wah wah.” I do not feel that way. I’m a little surprised that […]

I Love Food

I have no complaints today. Actually, that’s not true. I have one. I was woken up this morning not by an alarm, not by the sun, and not even by a rumbling stomach. I woke up because my toe hurt. […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Being Tired But Perky

Date: August 4, 2011 at 8:28 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 26

I’m so sleepy. Turns out, averaging 5 hours of sleep a night will catch up with you. But who cares that I’m tired? I mean really. A former boss once shared an article with me called “No One Cares How […]

Fear

The other day, Dori sent me this link about some creepy things happening on the Upper East Side. Awesome! There’s a serial groper roaming my ‘hood? Ew. I didn’t think much of it at the time, other than thinking, “That’s […]

I Sweat A Lot This Weekend & Ate A Lot Of Ice Cream

Date: July 10, 2011 at 7:41 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 22

I ran a lot yesterday. And I love you all for your incredibly kind responses to my new personal distance record. You make me feel super good. I thought I would crash pretty hard after banging out 15+ miles, but […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Comeback Time

Date: June 30, 2011 at 8:03 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 39

Confession: For the past month, I’ve dreaded Thursdays. With that whole lame Crohn’s Disease thing coming at me full force, I found it difficult to push past how my body was feeling in an effort to think happy thoughts. But […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Yoga, Run, Braid

Happy Thursday! I said it yesterday and I’ll say it again: This week has been a super speedy one. I can hardly even remember what happened on Monday. So let’s keep moving right along and get down to it: Today […]
