Yesterday was a looong day. So I’m kind of surprised to find out it’s only Tuesday today. Despite the fact that it was a marathon day, yesterday was a good one! My workday was busy and I scooted out of […]

“Just” 12 Miles

Date: July 16, 2011 at 10:33 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 23

Weekend! It’s here! I was so happy to leave work yesterday right at 1:30 pm. I definitely could have stuck around the office all day — there’s always plenty to be done — but I purposely made lunch plans for […]

I hope you’re in a good mood today. If you’re not, this post will either perk you up or piss you off. I hope it perks you up. I’m in an excellent mood today. Things are just good. I had […]

New Yorker

Although I’ve lived in New York City for almost four years, I definitely don’t consider myself a New Yorker. I feel like “New Yorker” is a sacred term — one reserved for people who were born and raised here, or […]

I Have A Great Feeling About Today

It’s a good day. Who’s with me? You can complain about the heat all you want, but I know I’m not going to let a little upper lip sweat during my morning commute bring me down. What? You don’t get […]

PDR = Personal Distance Record. Done. I am thrilled to report that I successfully ran 15.5 miles this morning. It’s the longest I’ve ever run and everything went perfectly. Let me take you back to the beginning. Well. Let me […]

I didn’t forget that today is Thursday. I’m just way late in posting due to traveling. At 4 am, when my alarm went off, I wasn’t feeling very thankful. But I am now, so let’s get to it. Here’s what […]

Orlando Day 3: Universal Studios & Margaritaville

Date: July 5, 2011 at 6:15 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 18

I’m sure these updates are getting a little boring. I’m still in Orlando. I’m still waking up early and going running. My alarm went off at 5 am today so I could cover six Coach Cane-prescribed miles. Of course, at […]

Are You Ready For Me, Mickey?

Date: July 2, 2011 at 10:26 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 19

Seven hours until I’m on board a JetBlue flight headed for Orlando, FL! So naturally before I can even think about hitting the air, there’s entirely too much to be done. Good thing I got that massage yesterday! Stress be […]
