10 Reasons The Runner's World Half Marathon & Festival Was Wonderful (Plus A Giveaway!)

Date: October 21, 2014 at 8:52 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 139

I’ve always been hesitant to attend blogger events. From runs and brunches to conferences and weekend-long events, my knee-jerk response is always a swift “no.” Those get-togethers just never seem like my thing. But in the spirit of saying yes […]

Steamtown Marathon Recap

Date: October 15, 2014 at 9:27 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 33

In the months, weeks, and days leading up to the Steamtown Marathon, everything was lining up perfectly for me. I was the healthiest I’ve been in years, I was trying out a high volume training plan that seemed to be […]

One More Day I Get To Run

Date: October 11, 2014 at 4:31 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 24

Tomorrow, I will run my fourth marathon. This marathon feels so different from the previous three. The first one — the Hamptons Marathon — was significant in every way. My training was perfect, I felt in the best shape of […]

Ragnar Relay Adirondacks Recap

Date: October 7, 2014 at 11:30 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 45

This is my longest post ever I think. Three runs in one recap. Sorry. Proceed with patience. For years, I avoided relay races. I know people love them, but I hated the idea of not always being right next to […]

71 & Done

I’m tapering. Oh thank the sweet running gods (or coaches, or calendars, or whatever), I am tapering. Yeah, my training plan for the Steamtown Marathon is “only” a 12-week plan, but boy has it done me in. My body feels […]

Back On The Run

Blog? What blog? Eeeeesh, I suck. I know. To think I used to write daily here… But the absence is with good reason, you see. Last summer, I abandoned this blog for weeks at a time because I was too […]

This Endless Positivity

Date: August 6, 2014 at 9:44 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 65

I can’t stop bouncing and wiggling today. As soon as I finished my workout this morning, I’ve had this nonstop energy that I can’t burn off. I figured I’d hit an afternoon slump, but it never happened. Instead, I jammed […]

A WednesDAY In The Life

Date: July 29, 2014 at 7:28 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 66

Haha. WednesDAY. So this blogging thing. Eesh. I’ve been not awesome about it, which is sad (probably only for me) because I’ve had plenty to share. I’m training for a marathon! I have a coach! I’m the healthiest I’ve been […]

Adjustments

Date: July 8, 2014 at 9:49 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 59

I’ve been wanting to write for a while. A big reason I haven’t been posting — so much for that “groove” I thought I’d hit — is that I simply don’t have time. A bigger reason for the absence is […]

Fairfield Half Marathon Recap

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 […]
