Long Run DNF

DNF = Did Not Finish. There’s a first time for everything, right? Let’s go back in time to recap this week a bit… Tuesday: Wake up brutally early to run seven miles before flying to L.A. for work. Embark on a 6+ hour flight aboard the always-pleasant JetBlue, and touch down in sunny and chilly […]

Starting My Day With Speed

Greetings from the west coast! I’m in sunny-but-not-super-warm Los Angeles until Friday for some work things, and even though the weather here is comparable to the crap you’re dealing with back in New York, I refuse to complain, because these next few days are going to be killer/awesome. Why yes, that was a run-on sentence. […]

Christmas 2011: Things I Did & Things I Did Not Do

I survived Christmas 2011. Did you? It’s been a crazy couple of days, but I’ll do my best to sum up this bit of the holiday season. It all started on December 23 — Christmas Eve Eve with Brian. I DID exchange Christmas gifts with Brian for the first time! We decorated a tree together, […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Happy Holidays!

It seemed like practically everyone on the subway this morning had big bags filled with wrapped gifts and massive suitcases in tow. When I say “in tow” I mean “thanks for running over my big toe with your giant bag, bitch.” Whoa. That escalated quickly, and I’m sorry. My toes are all just fine, despite […]

So come along, let’s […]

Are You Ready For Me, Mickey?

Seven hours until I’m on board a JetBlue flight headed for Orlando, FL! So naturally before I can even think about hitting the air, there’s entirely too much to be done. Good thing I got that massage yesterday! Stress be gone! I was able to leave the office at 1:30 pm, giving me plenty of […]

Hi From Charlotte!

I woke up at the blissfully late hour of 7:30 this morning — and I woke up in a big bed in Charlotte, NC! My trip is off to a great start. I worked from home yesterday, which was far busier and more stressful than anticipated. Some good news: I called my doctor yesterday and […]

Ali Claus is Comin’ to Town

All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go! I made my list… I checked it twice. And then I stuffed everything into my suitcase. Look at all those presents! Yay! I am giddy with excitement about getting to New Hampshire tonight. I banged out a 4-mile run this morning (The wind almost knocked me […]

Utah is Bliss

I’m totally exhausted after what seems like a whirlwind journey to get to Utah. But I am completely in awe of this gorgeous state. To recap… My journey began yesterday and was actually pretty uneventful. Because I’m traveling for work, I could have taken a car or cab to the airport, but I opted for […]
