#YOLOCELINE2017

Last weekend, I officially checked another item off my 2017 To-Do list. (Completed tasks as of June 2017 include “launch a podcast,” “go dairy-free for 30 days,” and “get healthy.” That still leaves “PR in the 5K,” “run on the Long Path,” “do a 100-mile bike ride,” “see La La Land,” and “get healthy — again” on the […]

Happy Celine Dion Week!!!

“I’m going to start a podcast! But I’ll still have time and energy and the desire to keep blogging!” Oh, Ali. I’m trying, though! Part of me feels like I should have all this podcasting stuff figured out already, because I like to be good at things right away. But then I remember I’ve only […]

There Were Moments of Gold & There Were Flashes of Light

This title pertains to nothing. Well, that’s not true. It pertains to Celiné Dion, goddess of life and everything that is magical. (June 3! June 3! I’m seeing her in Las Vegas on June 3!)

I laughed (when she sang Rihanna’s “Work” during sound check), I cried (when she sang “A New Day Has Come”)… …I gawked (that silver sequin pantsuit — need), and then […]

Currently… (Turkey sandwiches! Paris! Celine Dion!)

Last night, in an act of total narcissism, I went back and re-read a bunch of my blog posts from when I was building up my mileage and training for my first marathon. It was kind of joyful reading about all those feelings — the physical and mental — I encountered during that training cycle. […]

The Best Things In The World

Hi! I had some serious writer’s block last week. And the week before that. I was so sad about the 40 Days program ending. I came out of the program feeling so strong and so much better at yoga. Then I was busy, then I was traveling, then I was more busy. So after 40 […]

Next Stop: Las Vegas

Dear person who decided the week would include 5 working days and 2 weekend days: You suck. Love, Ali Do I like coming to work every day? Yup. Sure do. But do I love the weekends when I don’t have to work? Why yes, yes I do. After last weekend’s Marathon Mania, this weekend was […]
