Running Phase



Tuesday- 3.25 miles, all that J and I could handle

Tuesday morning I spent cleaning, folding laundry and scrubbing bathrooms. I didn’t get on the treadmill until noon as in afternoon. Ya, not ideal for either J or I’s attention span, but you know what? I ran. I ran because I can.

I’ve been so grateful today. I try and be grateful everyday, but today I realized that my days won’t always be this flexible. We plan on having more children someday so I expect my days to become more and more hectic. That’s fine by me, I come from a large family and loved being in a house full of noise(in doses;))

Just my side of the family(sorry it’s a photo of a photo)

I’m grateful that I get to plan my days and that I can jump on the treadmill at noon. J is a good sport and only tries to get out of the gate every so often haha

photo(195)I run because I know some days I won’t be able to. I don’t want to take this phase of my life for granted.

Are you a morning, afternoon, or evening runner?

Are you grateful for the current ‘phase’ of life your in?

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.

    I’m grateful for being allowed to run again. It’s a big deal for me right now since I have been out for awhile. Running in the morning is the best but most of the time I have to run in the afternoons for practice. Can’t wait to be out on my own again running whenever I want.

  2. I am definitely a morning runner. With work, I end up having to do a lot of evening runs and for some reason I just don’t quite have my running groove then. Oh well, I can run and that is definitely something to be grateful for. I am grateful that I am employed and saving up money so my guy and I can have a down payment for a house when we get married. Not my favorite job, but it’s temporary šŸ™‚

    I am very grateful. Lately I’ve realized everything happens for a reason and just embrace it all. I am an afternoon runner by default but if I could make my own schedule at work I’d totally be a morning runner šŸ™‚

    I prefer to run in the morning, but leaving for work at 6am has made that really hard. I try to get my runs in after work now, but I definitely don’t have the same energy or motivation that I get in the morning.

  5. I’m a morning runner only because it’s the only time I can fit it in. I’m currently really grateful to be pain and injury free for the time being.

  6. I’m definitely a morning runner, only because I know I will not be able to do it later in the day. Running later in the day doesn’t make my body feel great, it’s usually harder for me to do, and I lose interest really quickly. I’m grateful for these last 7 months, the heartbreak that came with them, the lessons I learned, and the woman I am today because of them. My ex is trying to come back into my life now, but I’m thankful for those last 7 months because they’ve made my heart stronger and smarter, and while I’m not totally closed off to that idea, I’m not sure now is the right moment either. Sorry if that’s too personal! But that’s what I’m grateful for.

  7. I am absolutely a morning runner! You are very lucky to be able to jump on the treadmill at noon šŸ™‚ I am very grateful for this phase in my life…I know it’s right where God wants me to be right now šŸ™‚

    Middle of the day for me! Im too tired in the morning and like to busy at night- so mid day it is!

  9. One of my favorite sayings is “run for those who can’t.” It’s so easy to take the little things in life for granted. Keep up the positivity šŸ™‚

  10. During the week I run in the evenings. On the weekends/long run days I try to get up early so that I can practice race day situations (fueling, bathroom, etc.). I haven’t had a pain free run in a few weeks, and haven’t ran in a week, but hopefully I’ll be back on the wagon soon!

  11. I love to run in the morning, but I’ll settle for the afternoon!
    I’m grateful for the fact that my sons are really growing up. They are showing me time and time again that making tough choices when they were little and putting in all of that time and effort can really pay off,
