Here It Is!

You see the exclamation point. You know what that means. It’s happy post time! Exclamation point! I’ve had an active couple days — “active” by my sad, low new standards — but active and happy and certainly worth celebrating. A bit of pre-excitement clarification: My stomach isn’t better. I’m still up a lot at night, […]

Making A Bad Day A Good Day (Plus A Very Sweaty Giveaway!)

I woke up this morning with the sun, and by “the sun” I mean “my stomach went ape shit at 5 AM, long before the sun rose, and so I got up.” Good morning and Happy Friday! Or should that say “happy morning and Good Friday?” Also Passover. So today started the same way yesterday […]

The Three Questions Everyone Keeps Asking

Yesterday was a looong day. So I’m kind of surprised to find out it’s only Tuesday today. Despite the fact that it was a marathon day, yesterday was a good one! My workday was busy and I scooted out of the office right at 5 in order to make it to the gym for some […]

Ali At The Doctor

Wednesday! When the heck did it become Wednesday? This week is flying. I have a good feeling about today — anybody else? Despite the fact that I hardly slept last night (I cannot for the life of me figure out how to be in bed before 11 pm), plus the fact that I woke up […]

Sweaty Saturday

I’m in love with this warm weather! Sure, it means I get that sexy upper-lip sweat by the time I get to the subway in the morning, and it requires me to wake up beyond early on the weekends to run before the heat hits, but it’s worth it. Sunshine = happiness. After work yesterday […]

Not A Morning Gymmer

If you’ve been an Ali On The Run reader for more than a day (and if you haven’t, hi and welcome!), you know that I start my days running. I run in the morning because I love being outside. I love the fresh air, I love the alone time and I love that I can […]

Weak Areas

Round of applause: We survived Monday! Although today marks the beginning of another grueling five-day work week, there are a lot of things happening this week that I’m excited about: A double header on Broadway: On Wednesday I’m seeing a matinee (Anything Goes) and an evening performance (Catch Me If You Can). Job perks! My […]

10 Things For Today

I woke up this morning and decided it’s going to be a great day. The sun is out, the weather is going to hit 40 degrees (sad how excited I am about that) and there’s plenty to be happy about. As you know, few things in life make me happier than lists. So in honor […]

I Do Not Like To Be Upside Down

I’m not necessarily a daredevil, but I am up for a certain amount of adventure from time to time. Yes. I jumped out of a plane in Australia. See? Today, I felt courageous when I decided to finally try out Crunch’s much-hyped (and very popular) “AntiGravity Yoga Wings” class. According to the class description, this […]

My Night With Louis Van Amstel

OK, if you’re not a dancer or a “Dancing With The Stars” fan, you probably don’t even know why it’s cool that I hung out with Louis Van Amstel tonight. He’s one of the pros on “DWTS” and has famously partnered Kelly Osbourne, Margaret Cho and Lisa Rinna. Even my grandmother has a crush on […]
