“That goal wasn’t for anyone else. It wasn’t to prove anything to anyone else. It was just something new that I was going to accomplish on my own.”
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 my time as a single 20-something in New York City, redefining the word “smart,” dealing with expectations and disappointment when a race isn’t a personal best, muffins and more. Thanks to everyone who called in for this one. Enjoy!
