Thankful Things Thursday: New Sneakers, Thick Thighs & I Really Love Food

Date: August 25, 2011 at 8:32 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 35

Hello. Today is Thursday. This week has been speedy. Probably because I was gallivanting around Fire Island on Monday and Tuesday instead of working. My feet are covered in bug bites. I’m not very excited about that. They’re itchy and […]

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 […]

Running At Night Is Hard

Date: August 23, 2011 at 6:48 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 36

After a semi-tough race on Sunday followed by a few blissful days of beaching and drinking in Fire Island, today I was forced to return to reality. Boo. Hiss. I should note that I am currently listening to “A Whole […]

Drinking & Blogging From Fire Island

Date: August 22, 2011 at 7:23 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 23

Warning: My day has consisted of this… Yes, that’s right. I’m sorry, Mom. I have been drinking. Only a little amount though. Lauren made me do it. And now I will attempt to blog. Quickly. There’s still some more champagne […]

I’m in Fire Island and I’m drinking loads o’ wine, so rather than giving you a play-by-play of today’s JackRabbit Sports Battle of Brooklyn 10-mile race (I’ll do that tomorrow), tonight I’ll simply leave you with a few photos and […]

Single Digit Saturday

Date: August 20, 2011 at 7:01 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 17

I don’t remember the last time I slept in on a Saturday. I definitely don’t remember the last time I ran fewer than double-digit miles on a Saturday. Since training began for the very-quickly-approaching Hamptons Marathon, my weekends have revolved […]

Running With Coach Cane’s Crew

Date: August 19, 2011 at 8:02 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 26

I never run at night. I’m a morning girl. I’ll gladly wake up at 5 am to bang out a few miles while the sun comes up. But ask me to lace up my Brooks past 10 am and I’ll […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On Snapping Out Of It

Date: August 18, 2011 at 8:23 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 35

You know how sometimes you wake up on the wrong side of the bed for no real reason and then you’re super cranky and can’t control your rage? That was me this morning. Oops. Maybe it was because I didn’t […]

You Can Have A Good Day Today

Date: August 17, 2011 at 8:03 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 47

Warning: Overly optimistic and peppy post ahead. Yesterday I wrote about how I’m so happy to be in the midst of marathon training. My speedy, rainy morning run wasn’t the only good thing about yesterday. In fact, right before bed […]

When Did Running Take Over My Life?

Date: August 16, 2011 at 8:04 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 72

One year ago, I loved running. But that’s it. I loved it, but I wasn’t super attached or addicted to it. Running was something I did and something I enjoyed. I ran the New York City Half Marathon in March […]
