No.

Date: May 13, 2013 at 7:37 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 62

No. I’m not better. Everyone keeps asking, “Do you feel any better?” Nope. Not really. I had fleeting moments this weekend on the couch where I’d think, “Hey hey hey now, I think I’m OK! I think I can go […]

I Still Believe In The Rabbits

Date: May 3, 2013 at 7:24 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 47

Wednesday was “Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit” day. I have woken up on the first day of every month since kindergarten and, while still laying in bed, I have whispered, “Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit.” It’s supposed to bring you good luck for the […]

I Didn't Want To Write About Boston

Date: April 22, 2013 at 7:39 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 99

It felt strange not to acknowledge what happened on the day of the Boston Marathon here. I kept feeling like, “I blog about running…I should have an opinion. I should have feelings. And I should share them…right?” But every time […]

An Update On The Great Juice Cleanse Of 2013

Date: April 8, 2013 at 7:52 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 42

I hate juice. I hate fruit juice. I hate vegetable juice. I hate freshly-made juice and I hate Cooler Cleanse juice. So yeah, The Great Juice Cleanse of 2013 is going supremely well! Clearly. To refresh your potentially short-term memory: […]

“This Is An Opportunity, Not A Punishment”

Date: April 4, 2013 at 7:16 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 85

Hi. I’m alive. And I’m doing OK. The Remicade, as suspected, never worked. The hospital visit was worth it for the fluid IV alone — my fever has been down since Monday and I’m not as deathly exhausted as I […]

Desperately Seeking Optimism

Date: April 1, 2013 at 7:08 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 72

Let’s get the cheesy stuff out of the way first… From the very bottom of my diseased little heart, thank you all so much for your kind comments, your sweet thoughts and your nice Tweets. Being ill sucks, but every […]

There’s So Much More Good Than Bad

Date: October 18, 2011 at 8:20 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 63

I am a happy person. I think life is great. Fantastic, even. On any given day, there is crap in the world that makes me angry and pisses me off. There are so many little things that can get a […]

The Weekend That Taught Me How To Prioritize

Date: October 17, 2011 at 8:12 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 43

Hi! This weekend was everything I needed. I didn’t blog. I didn’t Tweet. If you posted something cool on Facebook, I know nothing about it. I never once checked my To Do list, or even thought about it, and I […]

Thankful Things Thursday: There Is A Good Puppy Photo In This Post

Date: October 13, 2011 at 7:53 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 72

Today has all the makings of a bad day — I woke up feeling miserable, I definitely didn’t get to run (again), there are no signs of nice weather in today’s forecast and I have a meeting at 11 that […]

A Super Fun Time With My Doctor

Date: October 12, 2011 at 10:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 85

[Insert sarcasm here.] I went to my doctor yesterday. You remember the guy: poor bedside manner, condescending, doesn’t think “people with Crohn’s disease should be runners.” He’s so great. So great, in fact, that I took a little visit to […]
