New Goal: More Sleep

So far I’m really digging this little Tuesday. It feels like fall. The weather in NYC is pretty much perfect. In fact, it’s perfect running weather. It seems fitting, then, that today I went for a run. How much did I love this run? So much. The distance and speed, who cares about those things? […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Sleep, Sweat Shirts & Marathon Movies

Hi. Good morning. I have a lot to be thankful for today so let’s not waste any time. I’m thankful for sleep. One of my marathon taper goals was to get more sleep. Apparently I decided to get all of it last night. I went to bed at 9:30 pm and woke up this morning […]

Everything’s Better With Friends

If I take a nap under my desk today, do you think anyone will notice? Probably. But don’t you think it’ll start some cool trend? Maybe people wouldn’t look at me and be like, “OMG, Ali is asleep under her desk, we should obviously tell her boss because that is so not cool,” but instead […]

8 Hours, and It Felt So Good

Yup, that’s right. I got the recommended 8 hours of sleep last night. I don’t remember the last time I went to sleep, passed out, and got to wake up a full 8 hours later. ‘Twas glorious. My stomach was still feeling a little funky this morning, so I took my time getting ready before […]
