Thankful Thursday


Thursday-5 miles, 9:29 pace

Turns out J has croup, which just means a really bad cold/cough for the little guy. It takes up to 7 days to run it’s course, and it’s highly contagious. Luckily he got a steroid shot that will allow his throat and to open up so he can breath and not cough so terribly. Thanks for all the sweet well wishes=)

Thankful Thursday

1. It’s not surprise the top of my list today is modern medicine. So grateful my little guy can be somewhat comfortable and fever less.

2.  I’m thankful for the beautiful state I live in. It may be cold, but the snow sure is pretty. The inversion is finally gone too! I’m hoping to do a run outside on Saturday, we’ll see.


3. I’m thankful for those really ‘good’ runs. Sometimes the stars align and everything just feels great. On Monday, I ran my fastest 6 miles and I didn’t feel like I was completely dying.


4. I’m thankful for chocolate M&M’s that help the both of us get through grocery shopping.


5. I’m thankful that I get to be home and experience J’s life with him. I get to be there through the ups and downs. On the way home from the Dr.(the hubs drove us=)) J held my arm tight the whole way. Little moments that he lets me know I matter=)


What are you thankful for?

Do you bribe yourself or your kids when your grocery shopping? My mom would always let us pick out a prize if we were good at the store!

Have you had any really ‘good’ runs lately?

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.

  1. Glad they figured out what was wrong with J! It’s always relieving once you know the problem! Hope he feels better soon 🙂

  2. Aw! Sweet boy! Poor baby! I’m making a bunch of sad momma faces right now.
    Today I am thankful for a loving family (I have a husband and two boys) and another day of sunshine. It was cold, but the sunshine made all the difference on my run today!

  3. Awww such a sweet boy. . love that picture after the M and Ms! I am thankful for my health. . . especially with so many illnesses going around this year!
