Thankful Thursday


Thursday-10 miles, 9:35pace

Since I ran on the treadmill this morning I made a plan of attack so I could get through 40 laps. . . I thought in my head I’m just doing a 2 mile warm up, then when that was over I increased the speed slightly and did a 5k, then increased the speed and did another 5k, and then a 2 mile cool down. I listened to music and watched Grey’s Anatomy episodes. Oh, and I got really sweaty. I don’t think I’ve ever sweated this much, gross.

I know it’s not November, but I’m trying to be more thankful all year round so I can look back and remember the moments that really matter in 2013.

I’m thankful for our warm house. I’ve mentioned it before, and I’ll mention it again. It’s freezing this winter and I’m grateful for my cuddle buddies, space heaters, and extra blankets.


I’m thankful for my support system. I love having family that text, call, chat with me and really care about my world as much as I care about theirs.

I’m thankful for exercise and a body able to perform. I love being able to start my day with a run.

That’s all for today’s thankfuls, but there will be more to come. I definitely want to make this more of a habit.

What are you thankful for?


About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
