Date: May 14, 2011 at 1:20 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 28

I ran a 10K in Central Park this morning. My stomach didn’t explode during the race. That’s good. I wore hot pink. That’s also good. I came out of the race with a new 10K PR. Definitely good, right? (Even […]

If you’ve been an Ali On The Run reader for more than a day (and if you haven’t, hi and welcome!), you know that I start my days running. I run in the morning because I love being outside. I […]

Last night I wrote about how I’m in a good place right now. That’s true, don’t get me wrong. I’m happy to be settled in my new apartment. I’m being productive every day at work, which is a good feeling. […]

Date: May 1, 2011 at 3:07 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 17

I came to a realization this weekend: The hardest part of marathon training isn’t going to be the long runs. It’ll be the long run recovery. I’m still so pumped that I ran 14.5 miles yesterday. Three years ago I […]

Getting High

Today was another stressful one. My work To Do list is looking pretty good. My life To Do list is another story. Highlights of my post-work day included… Making time for strength training. I left work with enough time before […]

Someone Always Thinks You’re A Star

As you know by now, the past two months haven’t been easy. I’ve been through a breakup. The breakup resulted in a move. Stress levels have been high, to say the least. I’m starting to feel very overwhelmed. I have […]

Welcome Home

I love my apartment. It has felt like home since the day I moved in, and although there’s still plenty to be done — who can tell me where to get an awesome area rug? — it’s coming together quickly […]
