My 2014 Game Changers

For the past two years, I wasn’t really into the “year end recap” thing. I cringed looking back on the two previous years, and wanted pretty desperately to just move forward. As I said time and time again, 2012 and 2013 were “just not my years.” But 2014 was a year that changed the game […]

Ragnar Relay Adirondacks Recap

This is my longest post ever I think. Three runs in one recap. Sorry. Proceed with patience. For years, I avoided relay races. I know people love them, but I hated the idea of not always being right next to a bathroom, and always blamed my stomach for not wanting to join a team. I […]

A WednesDAY In The Life

Haha. WednesDAY. So this blogging thing. Eesh. I’ve been not awesome about it, which is sad (probably only for me) because I’ve had plenty to share. I’m training for a marathon! I have a coach! I’m the healthiest I’ve been in, oh, three years! I’m pretty happy! But today, I’m here to share with the […]

Weekend Wrap-Up

Good morning! How was everyone’s weekend? Wonderful? [Yes.] Filled with running? [Yup.] Filled with ice cream? [No, sadly.] Filled with catching up on sleep? [Definitely not.] I ran the Brooklyn Half Marathon on Saturday (Here’s the full recap.) and although the race didn’t go as hoped or planned, I learned a few good lessons along […]

In A Good Place

Um. It’s May 2, 2011. That is crazy. That means today is my one month anniversary of living in my new apartment. The entire past few months have been crazy, to say the least. I went through a breakup. I moved out of the apartment I lived in with my now ex-boyfriend. I got selected […]

Mac & Cheese Is The Best Dinner

Today was another stressful one. My work To Do list is looking pretty good. My life To Do list is another story. Highlights of my post-work day included… Making time for strength training. I left work with enough time before the class I was taking started that I was able to do some of my […]

Give Me Your Marathon Advice

Good morning! I can’t believe I’m already back at the office. This weekend felt like it lasted about two seconds. In case you unplugged for the weekend, here’s what you missed in Ali On The Run land: I announced that I was selected as a finalist in JackRabbit’s Run For The Rabbit competition. I have […]

It’s Kind Of Easy Being Green

Kermit was right. So today is Earth Day. I think it’s great that there’s a day devoted to taking care of the Earth, though I feel similarly about this “holiday” as I do about Thanksgiving. We only honor it once a year? That’s silly. I’ll be honest: I’m not the most “green” person in the […]
