Maybe Less Really Is More

Yesterday I asked if you all remember the 1990s, and apparently you do. (That will bode well for those of you who will be attending TriviaFest tomorrow night.) What a hilarious decade. Jelly shoes? Trolls? “Blossom!” Lisa Frank? All great […]

I Love Sweat & The 1990s

Well hello. Happy Tuesday. I’ll be straight with you this morning: The only two things I am capable of thinking about of discussing are marathon training and Thursday’s Run For The Rabbit event. I have a one track mind this […]

I’m Marathon Obsessed

Date: August 6, 2011 at 11:20 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 33

When August 1 hit, everyone was all, “OMG, it’s already August, I can’t believe it, summer is over, I’m crying sad tears, boo end of summer, wah wah wah.” I do not feel that way. I’m a little surprised that […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Being Tired But Perky

Date: August 4, 2011 at 8:28 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 26

I’m so sleepy. Turns out, averaging 5 hours of sleep a night will catch up with you. But who cares that I’m tired? I mean really. A former boss once shared an article with me called “No One Cares How […]

A Kick In The Butt

I told myself I would get more sleep this week. So far: Fail. Really big fail. I’m running on 4 hours of sleep and I’m going to go ahead and say it was totally worth it. Did I was my […]

18 Miles

Before I started training for the Hamptons Marathon, my seasoned runner friends warned me: “Marathon training takes over your life.” That warning never scared me. And now, with fewer than two months left until marathon day (September 24!), I can […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Sweating With Friends. Also, More Puppies.

Oh heeeeey. Today, as you know, I bring you Thankful Things Thursday. I have nothing pithy to say to kick this off, so let’s just bang it out. That’s what she said. BOOM. I’m thankful my knee isn’t hurting today. […]

7 Links

There’s lots to be shared today so I’m getting right down to business… (If you wear a denim shirt, you can say things like “let’s get down to business.” I just decided that.) My workday flew by yesterday. That happens […]

Sweet 16

I did it! This morning, I made 16 miles my bitch. OK, that’s not totally true. In fact, those 16 miles sort of made me their bitch. But I got through those miles and ended today’s run — a new […]

Fear

Date: July 20, 2011 at 8:19 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 56

The other day, Dori sent me this link about some creepy things happening on the Upper East Side. Awesome! There’s a serial groper roaming my ‘hood? Ew. I didn’t think much of it at the time, other than thinking, “That’s […]
