It’s been 48 hours since the Fairfield Half Marathon and my body is very slowly coming back to life. Very slowly. I felt really dehydrated all day yesterday so I was chugging water at my desk. That meant I was […]

Fairfield Half Marathon Recap

Date: June 27, 2011 at 8:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 44

How do you recap a race you kind of hated? Sigh. Well, let me clarify: I hated the course and I hated the weather. But there was plenty about yesterday’s Fairfield Half Marathon that I loved. I went into this […]

Still A Success

It’s been a long day. I was up at 4:30 am in order to get up to Connecticut for today’s Fairfield Half Marathon. The full recap will come tomorrow — because right now my priorities are frozen yogurt and sleep […]

‘Twas The Night Before Fairfield

Date: June 25, 2011 at 6:17 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 26

Tomorrow I will run 13.1 miles through Fairfield, CT. The way I see it, this race could go one of two ways: I wake up, feel amazing, say F-you Crohn’s and totally dominate the course. (I love this option.) I […]

I Am Not Sick

Good morning! It’s a beautiful day in New York City — and it’s the first day of summer! I can think of no better way to start the day than with a Central Park run. But we’ll get back to […]

Dizzy

Happy Monday! It’s been a whirlwind couple of days and I have a pretty strong feeling today is going to kick my butt. After working from home two days last week then taking Friday off to travel to Charlotte, it’s […]

Fun In Charlotte

Hi from Charlotte — again! It’s been such a great trip so far and I’m heartbroken that in just 12 hours I’ll be on my way to the airport to fly back to NYC. You know I love you, New […]

Thankful Things Thursday: The Good In People

Date: June 16, 2011 at 10:04 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 42

Have I told you lately that I love you? Rod Stewart knows what’s up. That is a Rod Stewart song, right? But seriously. When I wrote yesterday’s post about how “Crohn’s Disease is a dirty bitch” I was basically just […]
