Fun Friday Facts 13.0


Thursday- 3 miles on the Tready + Zumba


more miles on the Brooks(review coming soon I promise)

I headed up to my sisters nice and early yesterday morning. We had a fun pool day planned at my sister’s neighborhood pool. Unfortunately once we all got there in our suits we realized it was only 53 degrees out! Pretty chilly, but my sister was right when she said, “Us Seattle girls can take it.” It’s true, 53 was a wonderful summer day in Seattle, and now we think it’s cold.


J tried out some his new floaty with his cousins. I think he’s ready for the arm floaties, he tried some on and loved them!


Fun Friday Facts.

1. I love the idea of having homemade pizza on Friday nights. I think it’s a fun tradition and pretty easy to make. In the 3 years we’ve been married the only pizzas I would make were pepperoni or BBQ chicken. Josh was getting pretty sick of our tradition until my SIL and neighbor told me to try new recipes. Wow, how did I never think of that? Quite embarrassing really. Anyway, I made my neighbors pesto, mozzarella, tomato pizza. We loved it and my mind is blown.

yes I snuck a piece before=)

2.One time I went to a roller derby. It was everything I hoped it would be and more. I even found this guy. He may love purple more than me.


3. I went to Zumba for the first time in years last night with my SIL. Jenny was the instructor and she was so enthusiastic and had all the right moves! Did I mention she even incorporated weights? Loved it! Jenny’s also running her first half marathon in January!! What advice do you have for her??


4. I close my eyes when I brush my teeth. Is that normal? Does it help that I use a Sonicare? No? mmkay.

Any Zumba lovers out there??

What was your workout today?

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. It’s only supposed to be in the 60’s at home this weekend but if it’s sunny, you better believe I’m getting in my bathing suit and sitting by the pool, so I don’t blame you in the slightest! I grew up eating pizza every Friday so it’s sort of engrained in me now. I love to cook homemade! I think it’s the one food I will never get sick of.

  2. No workout today and I am mehhh over Zumba. But I do agree it’s weird that you close your eyes when you brush your teeth haha!

  3. I don’t love Zumba, mainly because it makes me feel like an uncoordinated dummy, and most of the women in there are SO good at it!

    Workout yesterday was a 5 mile speed-ish run, loved it! And today is cross training with elliptical and a Body Pump class since I missed my usual Monday night class this week.

    Advice for Jenny: have fun! You will do MUCH better than you think you will and be hooked!

  4. Ahhh I never close my eyes in the bathroom because I have this irrational fear that someone is going to sneak up on me! I watched too many scary movies as a kid and have trouble separating fact from fiction.

    • That’s a good point. Now I’m going to think of that the whole time lol I don’t usually close my eyes the whole time, I never even noticed I did it, until the other night when I just wanted to fall asleep and then I was like, Why am I closing my eyes??

  5. You really close your eyes when you brush your teeth? that is the first time I have heard that one.

  6. that is FREEZING for me and I grew up in Chicago. I am a WIMP especially now that I live in FL.. I don’t close my eyes, but I sometimes don’t face the mirror/sink when I brush my teeth. I’m not sure what that is about, but it happens. I’m weird.

  7. So glad you loved Zumba!!

  8. I so want to go to roller derby, it looks crazy fun. Or I’m just thinking that the movie looked awesome, what was it called? Ack, I can’t remember.

    I was at the gym yesterday and there was a class that was doing zumba and weights at the same time too! It looked like a tough workout, the people coming out were dripping with sweat. I’d love to try it but the way they were moving their hips… mine don’t move like that!!

    Have a great weekend!

  9. That pizza sounds awesome! Have you ever tried cauliflower pizza crust? It is SO tasty!

  10. I think it’s funny that you close your eyes when you brush your teeth 🙂 I close my eyes when I do sit-ups…Weird of me 🙂
