Resolution Check-In Time

I know what you’ve been thinking lately: “It’s about halfway through the year — I wonder how that Ali On The Run girl who always talks about Crohn’s and legwarmers is doing with her 2012 New Year’s Resolutions. It’s imperative to my own well-being that I know whether she’s crossed ‘take a knife skills class’ […]

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 Resolutions I Should Have Made But Didn’t Because They’re Too Difficult

Yes, I’m still talking about New Year’s Resolutions. I’d rather talk about that than the weather. Did you hear? It’s cold out today. Weird, since it’s winter and stuff… I still ran this morning, despite the brisk wind I could hear plowing into the windows all night. I went to Central Park for five slow-moving […]

Measuring My Year In Sweat

I don’t know if you know this, but I think sweating is cool. While some people measure their years in how much they achieved, or in daylights or sunsets or midnights or cups of coffee (RENT? Anyone? No. OK.), I prefer to look back on my year and assess how much I perspired. After all, […]

My 2012 New Year’s Resolutions

Have you heard? It’s no longer 2011. We have officially entered 2012 territory, and so far I’d say the new year is off to a kickin’ start, wouldn’t you agree? Brian and I expertly executed our “get the heck out of New York City and let’s not tell anyone where we’re going plan,” and rang […]

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? […]

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. […]

No Knee Pain!

I am proud to report that after giving myself a running rest day yesterday — in addition to the loads of foam rolling I’ve been doing lately — I ran 4 miles this morning without any pain! Usually I don’t feel much pain anyway during the run. It’s when I stop running that the aches […]

My 2011 Resolutions

I love making New Year’s Resolutions. Growing up, I always made lofty, unmeasurable goals for myself. I wanted to lose weight, eat healthy, etc. But last year I learned that in order to make a resolution effective, you need to make it something tangible. At least that’s what works for me. For example… In 2010, […]
