About Me

Hello! My name is Ali. I am a 20-something living in the Midwest, right outside of Kansas City, MO.

This city is gorgeous.

I spend my mornings running and training for races.

I spend my days working at Hallmark corporate loving my job and the people I work with.

And I spend my nights hanging with my awesome husband Ramsey and sweet dog – Winnie the pooch!

Lucky.

Lucky.

Cutest dog that has a few behavior issues.

In 2011, I ran my first marathon. I have been hooked ever since. In December 2014, I will run my 7th marathon. It has been such a crazy-fun ride that has taught me so much about myself and made me such a strong person inside and out.

First marathon in the pouring down rain. But scored my first BQ!

My favorite marathon experience was Boston 2014, with NYC 2013 coming in at a close 2nd. I love big city races.

Ran the race with a GoPro in 2014. It was awesome!

When I am not running, working, or snuggling with my husband and dog, you can find me on my couch watching Scandal or SVU, with my friends at happy hour, serving as a Board Member for Girls on the Run, hanging with my family, or reading a book. My life is simple and I love every minute of it.

Best friends.

Love my Mom.

Girls on the Run is SO MUCH FUN.

I believe in living a balanced life and enjoying every moment – the good and the bad.

 

I hope you enjoy my blog!

    Hello Ali,
    Just a quick message to ask if you would be interested in a ‘mutual’ following on twitter. I am currently following you now and am awaiting for your follow-back. (#FYI I do RT’s ‘anytime’ for all #Triathletes #Cyclists #UltraRunners & #Marathoners #FitnessProfessionals who follow me on Twitter and have something ‘important’ they want mentioned…)

    All the very best for the rest of 2012 and beyond Ali. Look forward to hearing from you…
