Eating Truffles May Be Good Fuel


Thursday- 3 miles on treadmill + shoulder workout + 8 min abs

I did these 5 workouts 2 times through with a 5lb weight.

photo-21I started my workout with some more dynamic stretching. It sounds like a lot of you do that before running, why did it take me so long to jump on that train?? I also followed my workout with a lot of stretching and foam rolling the side of the back of my knee.


The stretching before and after my workout has helped me feel sooo much better. Who knew? everybody…


Yesterday morning I headed to a family friends house to do something very important. Learn how to make these amazing treats. I heard all the Olympians eat them as workout fuel. I just can’t remember where I heard that…

J found a train bike and wouldn’t get off it for anything or anyone. Not even for lunch, so I may a ‘drive up seat’ for him to eat at.


That night my parents and grandpa came to visit us. This was the first time my grandpa from Seattle has seen our house. J had fun showing him all around and even showing him that he was wearing shoes=)

photo(721)I hope you guys are having a wonderful Friday, Josh, J and I are going to have a really great weekend, but it’s a secret. I can’t wait to tell you when I can!!!

Did you live close to your grandparents?

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.

  4. Those oreo truffles are amazing, yum! I live in the same town as my dad’s parents, and my mom’s parents live about 2 hours from us. They live in the twin cities, so I stay at their house a lot when I want to go shopping or visit friends. I even have my own room!

    I love very far from my grandparents. I got to see them last week. I wish I could see them more often. As a kid I spend one or two months at the beach with them. They are a big part of my life.
