Fun Friday Facts


Friday-10 miles, 9:05pace I hadn’t planned on running 10 miles, in fact I didn’t even want to workout today. I had set my workout clothes out and when I was laying in my bed reading my book while J napped they kept staring me down. I finally settled in my head that I’d just run a few miles, but by mile 7 I felt like I could keep going. Miles 7-10 there was a lot of holding on to the treadmill bars, it was mentally tough. I beat my 10 mile time of last week by 5 minutes!

I don't know what it is, but when I run inside I get so thirsty. 1.5 bottles down

Fun Friday Facts

1. The first time I met Josh’s family was at a gas station on the way to Lake Powell(AZ), I agreed to go on a boating trip with him and they agreed to let me come=). It could have easily been a weekend of awkwardness, but it wasn’t. Even sharing a bed with his sister that I had only met once before ha. I had a blast! Best. Decision. Ever.


2. My freshman year in college I joined an intramural volleyball team with a couple friends and my roommates. We ended up being intramural champs and winning the coveted champion shirts. It may have been the ‘beginners’ league but a win is a win;)


3. One of my favorite things to do during the summer is go tubing. I love flying around behind the boat, hitting waves and getting flung off. Yes, I’m dreaming of spring/summer and I can’t wait!

What are some fun facts about you?

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.
