I Was A Guest On I’ll Have Another With Lindsey Hein!

Hello! How was your Thanksgiving? Important question: What’s your favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner? I like traditional bread stuffing with gravy on it. I also like buttered dinner rolls (smothered in gravy), and whatever’s for dessert (smothered in chocolate). This year I was a bit of a downer during the holiday. There were plenty of […]

The Dog And Pony Christmas Show

There was Thanksgiving… …and then there was Hawaii… …and then the holidays came and went. And because of the festivities in Hawaii, Brian and I figured we should spend the holidays together for the first time, visiting both our families all over New England. He called it “the dog and pony show,” which I guess […]

Don’t You Forget About Me

Hi! My name is Ali and I blog about running, Crohn’s disease, and life in NYC with a side of sarcasm at Ali On The Run. I’m 29, and I’m a writer/editor doing digital marketing for a running company and taking on a load of freelancing on the side. I enjoy llamas, giraffes, yoga, and […]

OK

I feel so much better. Sometimes people say things like “Writing is therapeutic.” And while what I do here is surely no substitute for seeing a licensed professional who can hear me out and tell me what’s up, writing that post last week was a bit like eating a really huge, leafy salad — or […]

With One Month To Go

Hi gobblers! I hope you had a nice, stress-free, full-bellied Thanksgiving. On the long weekend front, there’s not much for me to report. Instead of cramming eleventy billion “must do now” tasks into the three days I was in New Hampshire, I instead took The Route Frequently Less Traveled By Ali. I did pretty much […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Thanksgiving Edition

I’m currently sitting at my mom and dad’s house in New Hampshire, hanging out with all my favorite people and being entertained by my BFF Ty. As I sit here in my baggiest sweatpants, surrounded by great people and a plate of Oreos (I wrote half of this Wednesday night — though I’m certainly not […]

I’m Ready To Taper

Hello! It’s been a while. You know what was awesome about the Thanksgiving break? Spending time with my family and not feeling the need to document every minute of my trip. I love blogging, but this weekend I also really loved not blogging. I kept plenty busy while I was in New Hampshire. I Turkey […]

A Very Thankful Thanksgiving

It’s Thankful Things Thursday and it also happens to be Thanksgiving. Look at that! I feel luckier than ever lately so excuse me while I gush, gobble and fawn over all the things I’m truly thankful for today. I’m thankful to be home. My flight up to Boston was so easy yesterday. Thank you, JetBlue, […]

Thankful Things Thursday: On My Ever-Expanding Family

Warning: I’m in a wicked good mood today. Yeah. Wicked — because I’m from New Hampshire. You cannot take that word away from me, no matter how far from that 603 area code I happen to live. Good thing it’s Thankful Things Thursday. I’m thankful for biscotti. How had I never tried this delicious treat […]

Thankful Things Thursday: First Edition

Lately I feel like Ali on the Run has become Ali Recaps Her Workouts But Doesn’t Write About Much Else. Time to mix it up, folks! Back in November, I had this little revelation: Why do we only show how thankful we are for life’s little blessings just one day a year? There are things […]
