This is Miles with Style

23 Jan

I recently received an opportunity to audition for a national online magazine publication. They wanted to know who I am, what my story is, and what interests my readers. This post is my audition to be a part of this publication, and to share my thoughts, opinions and views with many other people!

So who is Ali and what is all about? Well, keep reading and you will find out!

The Story, The Readers and The Posts

The fitness story behind is a short and sweet one. I have always enjoyed being active, and love the results I see from it. Whether those results include winning an age group in a race, being a happier person, or squeezing into a pair of skinny jeans, I love being active. And I also love the fitness fashion that comes along with it.

The readers of enjoy the positive messages, and relevant content posted on my blog. I understand that we all lead busy lives full of crazy commitments and time constraints. Some days you cannot invest an hour into a workout routine, but that doesn’t mean you cannot make better choices in other areas of your life. I love encouraging others, and helping them to realize that they can live an active and healthy life too. To me, a happy life is a balanced life.

The most popular posts on are those related to fitness fashion. My readers know the importance of workout attire that is both functional and fashionable. I am here to help them find these fashion gems. I believe that the right workout attire can make a difference in your workout routines, not only physically but also mentally. Whether you’re looking for clothes to wear in your marathon, or clothes to wear to boot camp class, you can find a review of the right product for you on this blog. I am a firm believer in the look good – feel good concept. I often listen to others talk about what they wish they had in a workout outfit, and strive to find it for them.

So why should you read my blog and listen to what I have to say? It is simple. I understand who you are as a reader of this blog, and what you are looking for. I know you enjoy relevant material that can be tied into your everyday life, conveying practical suggestions and positive communications. I also know that you recognize the role fitness fashion can play in your life. After all, this blog was not named Miles with Style for nothin’!

Please join me (or kindly continue to stay with me) on my blogging journey!

    Ali – I am loving your blog! Even though I am not even close to the level you are as far as being fit, your positive attitude helps me in my own journey. I also like that you show fashions at all different price points, as everyone has different needs and expectations for workout clothing. You’ve inspired me to get out of my saggy, sloppy sweats and at least wear something that fits! Your positive attitude is contagious, and I look forward to your blog each day. (Can I also say that as your former English teacher I am very proud of your writing skills as well as your fitness and fashion sense????? ) Keep up the good work! Judy

    Ali your blog was the reason I started blogging! Your blogs on positive thinking and using affirmations during a work out, and just in general, has helped me get through a lot of tough days! Keep up the great work!

    Ali, it’s so refreshing to hear someone actually talk about how exercise fits into a hectic life. I am an avid runner and make it a priority, but I hate when I read an article and am left feeling like I need to be Superwoman to work full time, love on my family and run. It just reminded me that even 30 minutes of activity is better than nothing even if I can’t conquer the world that day. And, nothing makes me feel better than a new running outfit so I love the fashion spin you add. Fashion on a budget was great after the post Christmas blues. Love it, keep coming.

    Ali, I total appreciate your blog! I am a runner and have a flare for fashion as well. I like to look good when doing whatever it is that I am doing. Your fashion sense is right on.

    Your blog helps me remember to find harmony in my life with all the things I juggle, not an equal balance. Life goes in seasons and sometimes my kids are the season, running is the season, work and so on. Thanks for all the positive messages.

    Keep on keep’n on!
    xoxo, Di

    Just wanted to drop a note to tell you how much I appreciate your blog! I’m no marathon runner but I do consider myself a work out aholic and someone who truly values health and nutrition. I can really see how much you care about your personal fitness and encouraging others to do the same. We all live busy lives and I know yours is just as crazy but it’s great seeing you make time to take care of yourself and share encouragement to others. I hope you continue to do so! Can’t wait for Friday’s Fashion Post!

    I have really enjoyed your Blog, Ali. I am inspired by your committment to goals, fitness and ofcourse fashion. I am 60 years old and have strived my entire life to treat my body with lots of TLC both inside and out. Most young girls don’t value your committments and think they can misuse their bodies with no ill-effect. I tried to instill those values in my 3 boys (they saw me eat veggies so they ate them, they saw me run and so they ran with me, they saw me play tennis and learned to kick my butt) and as adults they all 3 thank me for being a good example. Hope you thank and appreciate your parents for also setting this example. KEEP IT UP!!!

    I enjoy reading your blog with every post that comes! You’re such an entertaining blogger, I just love every post. Although I don’t run marathons and have only maxed out at 3 miles (yay!) I consider myself a fitness enthusiast and I love our bond between fashion. Keep up the great blogs, can’t wait for what’s next to come! – Lindsey
