Good morning! I’m pleased to report that I’m feeling good today. I got a solid 5 hours of sleep (I know, I know, not enough — but it was good, air conditioned sleep) and woke up today rested and ready […]

Memorial Day Weekend 2011

Date: May 30, 2011 at 5:07 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 22

Um…Can every weekend be a long weekend? Everything about the past few days has been perfect. Since we last caught up, I’ve been to 16 Handles… I’ve been to Brooklyn… …and — surprise, Mom! — I’ve been to New Hampshire. […]

Sweaty Saturday

I’m in love with this warm weather! Sure, it means I get that sexy upper-lip sweat by the time I get to the subway in the morning, and it requires me to wake up beyond early on the weekends to […]

I’m writing this post from the comfort of my own apartment, where I’ve set up shop for the day. (Needless to say there will be no office bathroom outfit photo today — I’m wearing pajamas right now.) My body is […]

Brooklyn Half Marathon Recap

Date: May 21, 2011 at 6:19 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 59

I wish I could tell you all that today’s race was perfect and wonderful and that I have a shiny new PR. Sorry. That’s not the recap you’re getting. Today’s race was my roughest one yet — but rest assured, […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Run Survival

Date: May 19, 2011 at 8:13 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 18

So far I’m not too impressed with Thursday. I was beyond exhausted when I woke up, my stomach is giving me hell and it took three subway transfers to get to the office. I could let myself be cranky. That […]

Oh hello, Tuesday. First, thank you all so much for the creative, original lunch ideas yesterday. For the first time maybe ever, I’m excited to go grocery shopping and stock up on some fun lunch things. You rock. I am […]

I Don’t Know How To Relax On The Weekend

I am heartbroken that this weekend is almost over. It’s been a weekend I needed, though, filled with a tough race, some quality gym time, yummy food (Chinese for dinner, oh yes), a good amount of sleep and lots of […]
