Tangent Tuesday


Tuesday- 5 miles on the TM

I’m very happy to report that this run felt great. It was nice to get a little more mileage in than I have been. I’m also thrilled because J is ready to be out of his play pen when I’m running. I’ve done it for a couple of weeks now and we haven’t had any problems. I set up a show in the other room(right next door to the room with the treadmill) and some snacks and he’s so happy. He’ll come check on me and try on my shoes, but he knows not to get close to the treadmill when it’s on. It’s so nice that I don’t have to entertain him the whole time I run!!

Oh, and this is the cute TJ Maxx sports bra I got for $8. The bright pink is so fun!



Tuesday Tangents

1. As you read this I’m on my way up to Girls Camp. It’s obviously a girls camp, but it’s a religious camp that I get to be a leader at. It’s all volunteer work, and I’m really excited to be a part of it. J will have fun with daddy, aunt Alisha, and Grandma Lee Lee(thanks again for all your help!) Hopefully I have some fun pics for you, but I haven’t approved the pics I have to use on the blog yet, so for now nothing=(

2. Yesterday we headed to the pool to play hard since I’ll be gone all week. J is always surrounded by girls. He tried to hold their hand, but L was not having it haha


3. I find lots of random pictures on my phone. J likes to play games on my phone and knows how to take pictures too. Here’s a few of the last week I found=) *J’s cute chunky thigh, half his face, and a random bag of fruit we had at the pool.


Tell me 2 random things about you

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. I love that J is using your phone to take pictures! It’s got to make you smile when you find a random thigh picture in your photo catalog haha 🙂 have a great time at your camp!

  2. what an awesome opportunity to be a leader! that sounds like it will be really rewarding. all my best and brightest sports bras are from tjmaxx or target. no shame! love them.

  3. I love bright colors for my workout clothes. I think it’s starting to seep into my regular clothes too, which considering that most of my wardrobe consists of black and gray it’s probably a good thing! Two random things: I hate raw tomatoes, and used to drive a convertible.

    Hooray for a five miler! And for J being so wonderful and letting you do your thing! I assume no more throwing things on the treadmill? LOL! He’s too cute! Thank goodness for technology. HAVE FUN at your camp!!!!! And what would people do without family to help? I always rely on people when I leave to take care of my dog. Thank goodness. 🙂
    Super cute sports bra!! And that price tag is even better! ❤ have a great day!

    Great news that you can run without worrying about J….aren’t you going to miss chucking toys into his playpen while you run?!?! haha
    I am going to do some yoga today and (maybe) stair or elliptical…it’s a non run day, which is good because it is ridiculously hot in Denver again!

  6. Erin says:

    That will be so fun being a youth leader! I can’t wait till the day Levi leaves me alone while on the treadmill haha! Love J’s selfies haha so cute!

  7. I think one thing I would be extremely amused by as a parent would be looking at the pictures on my phone after letting my child play with it. Those ones from Jackson are basically what I would expect and it’s adorable! Have a great time at camp!

  8. 2 random things about me: My favorite food is pickles and I love all animals that are babies, even if I don’t like the adult version.

    I had an experience like that with my phone one weekend, except not with a kid. Apparently, when I walked away, my friend took 300 (NOT AN EXAGGERATION) selfies of himself. That was a riot to scroll through.

    My workout today was only 2 miles…I’m recovering from a concussion and my head was starting to hurt, so I cut it short.

  9. That J is just precious! 2 random things about me…I’m terrified of birds and for some reason, I still think John Stamos is quite possibly the most handsome man on the face of the planet. Hello Uncle Jesse!!

  10. Great job on the run! I LOVE Tj Maxx for cute and affordable workout clothes! Aww what cute pics! I can’t wait (well, I can ;)) to be a mom and be able to experience all the unconditional love and fun that comes with motherhood!

  11. Runner Girl Eats says:

    Those J pics are awesome. He’ll have a blog of his own before preschool!

  12. Runner on the Rise says:

    I love getting my running gear at TJ Maxx! I could never bring myself to spend almost $40 or more on a bra somewhere else. 🙂
    Great work on your TM run; I’m glad it felt good — that’s what’s most important!

  13. Have an awesome time on your trip! I hope you are able to post pictures :).

  14. 2 random things…even though I am pretty girlie…I don’t have alot of girlfirends…I prefer quality over quantity when it comes to friends and…I hate ants…they really annoy me

  15. Love TJ Maxx! I always find the cutest workout clothes there. 2 random things about me? I am an only child…and I have a crazy sweet tooth! Currently dreaming about chocolate almonds…guess I just need to go run more…haha
