Noteworthy Numbers

Date: September 9, 2011 at 8:12 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 43

I’ve got numbers on the brain today. For example, 10:30. That’s what time I left the office last night. I wasn’t thrilled, but I can’t complain too much. My job rarely requires me to stay at the office past 5:30ish, […]

It’s another rainy day in NYC, but I predict the sun will come out this afternoon. I’m obviously a skilled meteorologist, so you should go ahead and trust my conviction. In addition to gloomy weather, today also brings along another […]

My Semi-Ridiculous, Uncontrollable Pre-Marathon Emotions

Date: September 2, 2011 at 8:36 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 53

Since late April, I’ve been training for the Hamptons Marathon. For a long time, that marathon seemed so far away. I focused my energy each week on my weekday runs and my weekend long run. I never really thought much […]

Don’t Fear The Running Buddy (Plus A Giveaway!)

Date: August 31, 2011 at 8:44 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 53

I talk to runners all the time who are “afraid” of running with other people. And you see, I can relate: I used to be one of those runners. When I started running in 2008, I lived with a runner. […]

Holy crap. Today is August 24. The Hamptons Marathon is on September 24. Let’s do some math, shall we? I have one month until race day. One month from today and I’ll be stepping up to that start line with […]

Lessons I Learned This Weekend in D.C.

Date: August 15, 2011 at 8:10 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 37

I’m a little shocked I survived the BoltBus ride back to NYC yesterday. The trip took an hour and a half longer than it should have, probably due to the fact that the bus was being violently pelted by raindrops […]

Ali & Emily Sweat All Over The Nation’s Capital

Um, you people really like T-shirts, huh? I am currently swimming in emails, Tweets, Facebook messages and comments from people demanding “I Heart Sweat” shirts. So here’s the deal with the shirts: I was informed over the weekend that the […]

Humbled

Date: August 12, 2011 at 8:38 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 145

I’m almost at a loss for words this morning. I don’t think I’ve ever really been completely knocked speechless ā€” I’m a big fan of talking and making noise ā€” but last night blew me away. I woke up with […]

Hello. Happy Thursday. I’ve got a busy day, so we’re jumping right into the “This is what I’m thankful for today” game. I’m thankful the big day is finally here! For the past two nights, I’ve woken up from dreams […]

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 […]
