Ali on the Run Show Episode 378: Ask Ali!

“You don’t know everything. I share a lot, and that still is only a fraction of my life, of my thoughts, of my opinions, of my day.”

Welcome to Ask Ali, a twice-a-month series where I answer all of your questions. This time around, we’ve got listener questions about the mental component of Crohn’s disease, my Enneagram type (3w2!), my thoughts on raising a daughter in the era of Instagram filters, getting back into running after a long break, Outback Steakhouse, “parasocial relationships,” and more. Thanks to everyone who called in for this one. Enjoy!

If you want to be part of a future “Ask Ali” episode (yay!), call 917-947-9699 — introduce yourself, and ask whatever’s on your mind! I can’t wait to hear from you!
