Shoes, baby, and another BBQ


Friday- 6 miles, 2.5 on my own, 3.5 with V

It was a great run. It’s getting so light out here in UT in the mornings, it makes me so happy! V and I had a great time catching up, as always. She was smart enough to wear sunglasses, it was bright!


That afternoon me and my SIL’s went to get our feet analyzed. My SIL just had a baby and they are both training for a half marathon in October.


We all put on Nike Free’s to run in because they are a ‘neutral shoe.’ I snuck pics of my SIL Whitney doing her test, um ya she just had a baby 4 weeks ago…


I found out I run pretty normal and don’t have any major issues. I currently run in Nike Lunarglides and I feel like they’re too clunky for me. I tried on these Altra’s and I may be in love. I may or may not know what my Mother’s Day gift is(hint, hint).


Then I got to hold Whit’s baby, I love lil baby hands=)


That night our neighbor invited us over for homemade pizzas. They have such a fun backyard, and J loves all the attention the other kids give him. I didn’t get a pic of my food, and I’m totally regretting it. I can’t wait to get the recipe for the delicious pesto, mozzarella, basil pizza Kim made. I brought watermelon, can’t have a proper BBQ without watermelon.

baby love=)

baby love=) and dinosaur in hand, of course

Saturday- 5 miles with Heather

Heather just moved into my neighborhood and the minute I heard she ran we became instant BFF’s (she doesn’t know it yet). When she texted me Friday wanting to run yesterday I was more than willing! There’s something different about getting to know someone through running. You always talk about more meaningful stuff than you would when you’re just chatting over lunch.

photo(475)Tonight the hubs and I get to go on a date and I’m very excited! Happy Saturday, hope everyone’s weekend is awesome!

Anyone get their feet analyzed latley?

Who’s eating watermelon this weekend?

Happy Mother’s day to all you wonderful mothers, or soon to be mothers!!

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 run in lunarglides too. I really like them but not in love. I want to get my feet analyzed before I buy my next pair though. I feel like I run pretty normal but it’d be nice to know 🙂

  3. I misread your title as “Shoes, BBQ, and another baby” and I thought you were telling us you were having another baby!

    I had my feet analyzed in February before my half marathon because my shoes were so worn down I had to get a new pair 2 weeks before the half. Talk about panic. I apparently run pretty normally so I’m guessing it was just my shoes giving me issues and not any pronation as I had thought.

    I’m not eating watermelon this weekend, but I am eating pineapple!

  4. Happy Mother’s Day!!

    Looks like you’re having a great weekend! I’m planning to get my feet analyzed in a couple of weeks. I know what they’ll say but I think it’s something I have to do anyway!

  5. Hey Sharsti!!! 🙂 So fun to meet you! You’re so cute! Hopefully we meet again soon!
