Hello From Utah!

Date: February 20, 2017 at 10:56 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 20

Alternate title: What Are Utah-kin About?  And that’s the only Utah pun I could come up with. Hello from the other side…of the country…slightly inland! I’m in Utah! I flew out last Tuesday and don’t return home until this Wednesday, […]

Happy Valentine's Day!

Date: February 14, 2017 at 6:33 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 21

Is Valentine’s Day a totally cheesy Hallmark holiday? Yes. But am I totally feeling it this year? ALSO YES. I’ve been in a nonstop good mood for like five days straight, and that’s the longest streak I’ve had since roughly […]

Every Day I'm Hustlin'

Date: February 7, 2017 at 8:20 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 30

I just couldn’t think of a better title. And I think I’ve used “Life Lately” like 38 times already. So…every day I’m hustlin’. Because I have been! The past week has felt like a whirlwind, and it feels so good. I […]

A Lighter Look At Life Lately

Date: January 25, 2017 at 9:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 27

I started writing this post by laying into all the harshness, nastiness, and all-around terribleness of the internet lately. Beyond just the political climate — can I get an ugh? — the internet feels extra harsh lately. But then I realized, […]

Dear 2017...

Date: January 4, 2017 at 12:19 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 30

Dear 2017, It’s so nice to make your acquaintance! I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about you. I’ve been sick for a few months now, so I didn’t know if 2017 would be the […]

My Best Of 2016

Date: December 30, 2016 at 9:38 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 13

At most recent glance, 2016 was hardly a banner year. On the global stage, the tragedies have seemed endless, the political situations, well, dire. There’s been a steady stream of sad celebrity deaths, and the internet seems to be fueled […]

New York City Marathon 2016 Recap

Date: November 7, 2016 at 6:32 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 59

Yesterday was the best day ever. The past two and a half months have included many not-so-best days ever. So I just wanted a day. I wanted one day to run the New York City Marathon, because I knew that […]

New York City Marathon Training: Week 14

Date: October 24, 2016 at 9:06 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 21

LAST WEEK WAS AWESOME. Warning: This post contains an excess of exclamation points. I’ll have an update tomorrow about all-things-Crohn’s and where they stand, but I am going to insist that getting out for a run last weekend is what put me […]

New York City Marathon Training: Week 13

Date: October 17, 2016 at 10:51 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 18

I thought I was done with my training recaps since, let’s be honest, am I really “training” right now? But this week had some little victorious and big breakthroughs, and I wanted to document them! This week marked my return […]

New York City Marathon Training: Weeks 10 & 11

Date: October 2, 2016 at 12:51 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 15

My first zero-mile weeks. The past two weeks have been rough — on the marathon training front and beyond. Weeks 10 and 11 of New York City Marathon training should’ve been my highest-mileage weeks thus far, but instead I didn’t run a […]
