Ali on the Run Show Episode 26: My Running Story

The Ali on the Run Show Episode 26 Listen on iTunes I SoundCloud I Overcast I Stitcher I Google Play I never expected to be a runner — and I certainly never expected running to be something I actually enjoy. On this episode, I take a run back in time (too cheesy?) to share how […]

Does A PR Last A Lifetime?

The first few years of racing are, in my opinion, the best. At least for me they were. When I ran my first race — the FITNESS Mind, Body & Spirit Games 4-mile race in Central Park in 2008 — I was clueless about running and had no idea what to expect from this thing […]

My 2011 Resolutions: Mostly Successful!

I love New Year’s Resolutions. Like seriously adore them. I get to make a bunch of goals in list form — what in the world is better than that? And then I have an entire year to accomplish them. It’s a brilliant concept, really. So how did I do with my 2011 New Year’s Resolutions? […]

Racing Scares Me

I have always said that I love running, but I don’t love racing. So why am I signed up for the Las Vegas Half Marathon again? And a handful of other races before the year is over? Racing is fun, sure. I like the energy on race day. I like the pre-race nerves I get. […]

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 […]

There’s lots to be shared today so I’m getting right down to business… (If you wear a denim shirt, you can say things like “let’s get down to business.” I just decided that.) My workday flew by yesterday. That happens when you’re busy. I left the office at 5 for some gym action. Coach Cane […]

Mid-Year Check-In

July! When did that happen? Did you remember to say Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit this morning? I did, though it wasn’t the first thing out of my mouth. I think the first thing out of my mouth was, “F you, 5 am, stop yelling at me.” Today is going to be awesome. I hope you agree. […]

I Wish I Would Have Known…

Friday! It’s here! Thank God. I’d love to say I’m looking forward to a low key, relaxing weekend, but that’s hardly the case. I’m running the Brooklyn Half Marathon tomorrow! I’ve never done this race before and I’m excited to run in another borough for the first time. I’m also looking forward to running my […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Good Advice & Brussels Sprouts

Happy Thursday! I have a lot to be thankful for today, so let’s get right down to it! I’m thankful for my new, wonderfully fluffy, bright orange comforter. Have I not obsessed over this enough this week? I know, I have. But seriously, this blanket is magical and I can’t wait to complete the set […]

Scotland 10K Recap

This morning I ran the New York Road Runners Scotland 10K race in Central Park. Considering I ran a half marathon two weeks ago, you’d think I would have cruised right through this bad boy today. Not so much. A 10K is 6.2 miles — that’s less than half the distance of a half marathon. […]
