The Greatest Day: My New York City Marathon Recap

Date: November 5, 2013 at 7:41 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 164

I spent the week leading up to the New York City Marathon thinking about many of my “worst case scenarios” for race day. Ignore the fact that I hadn’t totally “properly trained” by most peoples’ standards — I did enough […]

Returning To My Happy Place

If you are someone who has a calendar, or if you are simply the type of person who is generally aware of the date, you know that Monday was September 24. Ah, September 24. Last year, I spent months — […]

Ted Corbitt 15K Recap

Date: December 17, 2011 at 6:53 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 24

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 […]

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 […]

Fairfield Half Marathon Recap

Date: June 27, 2011 at 8:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 44

How do you recap a race you kind of hated? Sigh. Well, let me clarify: I hated the course and I hated the weather. But there was plenty about yesterday’s Fairfield Half Marathon that I loved. I went into this […]

Scotland 10K Recap

Date: April 10, 2011 at 1:17 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 25

This morning I ran the New York Road Runners Scotland 10K race in Central Park. Considering I ran a half marathon two weeks ago, you’d think I would have cruised right through this bad boy today. Not so much. A […]

Coming Together, Falling Apart

Date: April 9, 2011 at 5:15 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 17

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 […]

It’s Always Training Season

Date: March 28, 2011 at 9:09 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 19

My bags are unpacked, my medal is put away and — after a Chisel and Spinning session at the gym tonight — my legs are no longer sore. The National Half Marathon is officially over. Sad! Don’t get me wrong, […]

Returning To The Routine

Date: March 28, 2011 at 8:05 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 12

Mondays in general aren’t necessarily the most fun days. But Mondays following awesome long weekends are particularly rough. I’d much rather be sitting on my couch catching up on missed DVR (while wearing my new race medal, of course) than […]

I’m Not A Cute Runner

Oh my. Thanks, Brightroom Event Photography, for your fantastic skills capturing my beauty during this weekend’s Gridiron Classic in Central Park. That’s mean. I shouldn’t blame the photographers. They do a great job. When I’m running — especially when I’m […]
