Fairfield Half Marathon Recap

Date: June 23, 2014 at 12:37 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 38

All my life, I’ve never been big on spontaneity. I tend to enjoy well-laid plans and have a keen ability to follow through. Life according to plan is what thrills me. That’s changed quite a bit over the past two […]

Bridgehampton Half Marathon Recap

Date: May 15, 2014 at 1:04 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 50

Two races in two weeks! Dare I say this just might be becoming a running blog once again? As you may recall (because I refuse to stop reminding people), my first-ever marathon was the Hamptons Marathon. I had the best […]

Spring Duathlon At Smolak Farms Recap

Date: May 5, 2014 at 7:34 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 32

What is a race recap and how do I write one? Noooo, I remember how. And turns out, I even kind of remember how to race. Not too fast and not too far, but this weekend — for the first […]

The Lessons I Learned In 2012

Date: December 31, 2012 at 8:38 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 26

I think maybe I’ve mentioned once or twice that 2012 just never quite felt like my year. A running injury plagued the early months… …and from March through August I had that nagging Crohn’s flare-up that refused to quit. But […]

A 13.1 Mile Run Down Memory Lane: The Hamptons Half Marathon Recap

On Saturday, I returned to the scene of the crime. “The crime,” of course, being East Hampton, NY, where I ran my first marathon one year ago. This time, I was heading back to race again, but for the Hamptons […]

All summer long (um, all year long?) I wanted to have a Super Awesome Weekend. You know, those weekends that are so fantastically stellar from start to finish, and on Sunday night you can’t even be depressed about the week […]

Does A PR Last A Lifetime?

Date: March 27, 2012 at 8:18 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 73

The first few years of racing are, in my opinion, the best. At least for me they were. When I ran my first race — the FITNESS Mind, Body & Spirit Games 4-mile race in Central Park in 2008 — […]

Onto The Next!

Date: December 7, 2011 at 9:12 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 28

Yesterday’s Sadness Fest was fun, don’t you think? No! It wasn’t fun! It was silly. So I didn’t PR in Las Vegas like I had hoped. The great thing about that is that I’m over it now. Thank you all […]

Rock N Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon Recap

Alternate title for this post: “The Time I Talked A Big Game & Told Vegas To Be Afraid Of Me & Then Blew It On The Race Course.” But that seemed a little long, don’t you think? Hi, and welcome […]

Racing Scares Me

Date: November 2, 2011 at 8:40 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 42

I have always said that I love running, but I don’t love racing. So why am I signed up for the Las Vegas Half Marathon again? And a handful of other races before the year is over? Racing is fun, […]
