My Upcoming Race Goals

Date: November 18, 2011 at 9:12 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 74

All I want to do in life is talk about running and make lists and goals. Yesterday on my way to get Remicade, I snagged a seat on the crosstown bus and started typing out my 2012 Resolutions. I’m pretty […]

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 […]

Scotland 10K Recap

Date: April 10, 2011 at 1:17 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 25

This morning I ran the New York Road Runners Scotland 10K race in Central Park. Considering I ran a half marathon two weeks ago, you’d think I would have cruised right through this bad boy today. Not so much. A […]

Coming Together, Falling Apart

Date: April 9, 2011 at 5:15 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 17

My apartment is coming together really nicely! Though simultaneously my body is falling apart. I battled a sinus infection a few weeks ago, then got better just in time to run the National Half Marathon. Now I’m sick again, this […]

It’s Always Training Season

Date: March 28, 2011 at 9:09 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 19

My bags are unpacked, my medal is put away and — after a Chisel and Spinning session at the gym tonight — my legs are no longer sore. The National Half Marathon is officially over. Sad! Don’t get me wrong, […]

Returning To The Routine

Date: March 28, 2011 at 8:05 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 12

Mondays in general aren’t necessarily the most fun days. But Mondays following awesome long weekends are particularly rough. I’d much rather be sitting on my couch catching up on missed DVR (while wearing my new race medal, of course) than […]

I’m Not A Cute Runner

Date: February 8, 2011 at 9:30 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 12

Oh my. Thanks, Brightroom Event Photography, for your fantastic skills capturing my beauty during this weekend’s Gridiron Classic in Central Park. That’s mean. I shouldn’t blame the photographers. They do a great job. When I’m running — especially when I’m […]

Pump Me Up Playlist

Date: February 2, 2011 at 9:38 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 13

Aside from the Turkey Trot I ran with my family in November, it’s been almost a year since my last race! One of my favorite things about racing is creating a new playlist for the occasion. On Sunday, I’m running […]

Proud

Date: January 11, 2011 at 9:15 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 17

Most mornings, I’m happy to hop out of bed at 5:30 am to squeeze in a run. It’s just how I like to start my day. I understand that willingly bundling up under three layers and run/skipping around ice patches […]

Race Chatter

Date: December 15, 2010 at 9:41 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 3

Wow, I had no idea I’d stir up such a great conversation with this morning’s “Lottery Fail” post. Thank you all for sharing your thoughts on running, racing and getting involved with a charity. I’m nowhere near as bummed out […]
