Someone Always Thinks You’re A Star

As you know by now, the past two months haven’t been easy. I’ve been through a breakup. The breakup resulted in a move. Stress levels have been high, to say the least. I’m starting to feel very overwhelmed. I have so much on my plate right now and feel like I’m spread too thin. As […]

Race Chatter

Wow, I had no idea I’d stir up such a great conversation with this morning’s “Lottery Fail” post. Thank you all for sharing your thoughts on running, racing and getting involved with a charity. I’m nowhere near as bummed out about not getting into the NYC 1/2 Marathon as I was this morning. Of course […]

I’ll admit it — I haven’t worked a whole lot in December. Don’t get me wrong: When I’m in the office, I’m making my hours count. I work my booty off, I’m productive and I truly enjoy what I do. But with an abundance of vacation, personal and sick days left — and just two […]

My Blogging Addiction

It’s true: I’m an addict. Even before I started my own blog (welcome!), I was spending a lot of time reading other healthy living blogs. Now that I’ve set up shop in my own little corner of the Internet (Ali on the Run!), I’m even more into it. I’m loving sharing, commenting and learning all […]

Manic Monday? Not so much.

So like the title says, today wasn’t necessarily manic, but it was productive! The work days have been flying by lately. I look at the clock and all of a sudden it’s 3:00! Crazy. I love being busy, though, so it suits me. My new obsession: Chocolate macaroons from Whole Foods. I seriously can’t stop […]
