My Weekend (Spectating!) at the 2020 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials

It’s been three days since I got home from Atlanta. Three days later, and I’m still so hyped. I am so glad I chose to go to Atlanta to watch the 2020 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials. I think I booked my hotel almost one year ago. (Locked in a pretty good rate at the time! […]

That Next-Level Happy Run

“How’s your running going?” I knew that question was coming. It’s one Matt, my Ramblings on the Run with Ali & Matt co-host, and I ask each other to start every episode. Last month, I was giddy in my response. It was only January, and I’d already completed my one running goal for the year: […]

Popular Brooklyn Half 2019 Recap

Only took me two weeks to get this recap up. In my defense, I wrote it the day after the race! Just got realllllly lazy when it came to hitting that “publish” button! But if you’re interested in a 13.1-mile run I did a bit ago, here you go! I ran the Popular Brooklyn Half! […]

United Airlines NYC Half 2019 Recap

I ran a race! A half marathon! And I loved it! And I’m a little sore today! And I love it! That runner’s high, baby. Two days later, and I’m still feeling happy and yeah…sore. My quads and hamstrings, mostly. Ouch! I ran the United Airlines NYC Half this weekend, on a bit of a […]

NYRR New York Mini 10K 2018 Recap

NYRR New York Mini 10K 2018 Recap

I ran one of my favorite races this weekend! The NYRR New York Mini 10K is an all-women’s race that pretty much has it all: an inspiring professional field (Des! Molly! Sarah!), thousands of happy female runners lined up behind them, a great course, and stellar crowd support. I’ve run the race twice before — […]

Superhero Half Marathon 2018 Recap

I ran the Superhero Half Marathon on Sunday! I was talking to my friend Sarah on Friday, and she said she was running a half on Sunday. I asked which one, and where, and she told me it was in New Jersey. It took two words (“do it!”) and I was in. It does not […]

2018 New Jersey Half Marathon Recap

I ran the 2018 New Jersey Half Marathon this weekend and, just like last year, it was the best! By the numbers: I finished in 1:58.33, which is a 9:03 minute per mile pace. I made two bathroom stops, saw at least 200 puppies, and smiled the entire time. But there’s always a little more to […]

Boston Marathon Inspiration & The Women I Admire

Watching Desi Linden win the Boston Marathon yesterday was amazing. When she broke the tape, she became the first American woman in my lifetime to win the Boston Marathon. And Desi deserved it. She’s a fighter. She’s a workhorse. And she’s always said her thing isn’t about a gimmick or flash. It’s about putting her […]
