Quick! Name the French Canadian songstress quoted in the title of this post. Oh you’re not sure? That’s insane. Let me give you some hints: She is beautiful. She can hit notes no other singer can rival and she belts […]

Things I Love

Date: February 14, 2012 at 9:38 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 43

I have never been a big Valentine’s Day person. (No, I did not just Google “Does Valentine’s Day have an apostrophe?”) Sure I can get on board with some Hallmark cards, chocolate and cheesy celebrations, why not? But every year […]

A Letter To The Las Vegas Half Marathon

Dear Race On The Strip, Hello. I just wanted to shoot you a quick note to let you know how much I’m looking forward to seeing you on December 4. It’s coming up quickly! In just six weeks I’ll be […]

Some Things Are Tougher Than A Marathon

Date: October 5, 2011 at 8:24 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 49

I thought, considering I trained for and ran a marathon not too long ago, that I was in good shape. I can run for four-plus hours, so I can do anything, right? Oh, Ali. So naive. And also a little […]

Ali Turns 1

Date: October 4, 2011 at 8:27 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 60

I remember the day I finally started Ali On The Run. I had been reading lots of “healthy living” and running-focused blogs at the time and wanted to get in on the action. I’m a paid writer and editor by […]

Strong Is Sexy

Date: September 13, 2011 at 8:28 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 85

Last night I took a Chisel class at the gym. I hadn’t been to class — or done any quality strength training — for a few weeks. I was convinced all my hard-earned strength would be lost and I envisioned […]

Running At Night Is Hard

Date: August 23, 2011 at 6:48 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 36

After a semi-tough race on Sunday followed by a few blissful days of beaching and drinking in Fire Island, today I was forced to return to reality. Boo. Hiss. I should note that I am currently listening to “A Whole […]

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 […]

A Kick In The Butt

Date: August 2, 2011 at 8:17 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 62

I told myself I would get more sleep this week. So far: Fail. Really big fail. I’m running on 4 hours of sleep and I’m going to go ahead and say it was totally worth it. Did I was my […]
