Ali on the Run Show Episode 430: Ask Ali!

“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!

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!
