Last night I had a dream that I was running late to get somewhere. Then, back in real life, I got out of bed this morning, turned on the TV, and saw all this footage of Stonehenge. WTF is happening? […]

I Want To Know What It's Like

Date: July 11, 2012 at 9:11 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 43

I want to wake up in the morning, and I want to just run. I don’t want to spend an hour in the bathroom first. I don’t want to plan my route based on where I can find an open […]

Ignorance Is Bliss

You know how I know this weekend was good? I didn’t wear any makeup. I’m not a big makeup-wearer in general, but I do usually throw on a bit of please-hide-these-bags-under-my-eyes concealer or foundation or whatever it’s called, and my […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Let Freedom Ring...At The Beach

Date: July 5, 2012 at 8:59 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 41

Hello! I went running this morning. I ran six slow miles, and for each of those miles I had to make an urgent, awful bathroom stop. So great, right? And so instead of telling you about my sad little run […]

Date: July 2, 2012 at 9:13 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 43

So far I’m really digging this little Tuesday. It feels like fall. The weather in NYC is pretty much perfect. In fact, it’s perfect running weather. It seems fitting, then, that today I went for a run. How much did […]

Marathon On My Mind

Good morning! Today I have Marathon Training Brain, so that’s what we’re going to talk about. In December of last year, I finally “qualified” for the 2012 New York City Marathon. I ran nine New York Road Runners races, I […]

If I Ruled The World

Date: June 13, 2012 at 9:09 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 72

I know, it’s a scary thought. Sometimes when I run, I’m very focused on what I’m doing. I tune in to how my legs feel, how my hip feels, how my stomach feels, how my breathing feels, how my thigh […]

Those Two Monumental Moments

Date: June 12, 2012 at 9:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 60

There are always two exciting, monumental, OMG-so-encouraging milestones that happen as I’m coming back from a Crohn’s flare-up. When these things eventually occur, I’m all, “Oh Hell yeah, I’m back, I’m awesome, life is sweet, you can’t stop the beat.” […]

You know how people talk about those really awesome, high-inducing runs? The ones where the “miles fly by” and “everything feels so OMG awesome the whole time?” The ones where their brain and legs are totally in sync with each […]
