Happenings Lately


Tuesday- 6.88 miles on stationary bike + 8 min abs and lots of stretching


J thought he'd run on the treadmill since mom can't, thanks bud.

Wednesday-rest/stretching and foam rolling

I really really wanted to run yesterday(Wednesday) but God played a cruel trick on me and I woke up with a stomach bug=( He knew I’d want to run and he knows better than me and made sure I did no such thing ha

So here’s what we’ve been up to this week:

We’ve been hanging out with friends/family that we missed while we were in FL. J’s cute friend Elsie(they hold hands to church class=)) broke her leg jumping on a trampoline. She is so funny crawling everywhere and is such a champ!


J sneaking snuggles with his baby cousin while having a play date with his other cousin Cal.

Last night we went to Scheel’s a sporting store to get Josh some triathlon shorts. They have all these different places to take pictures with animals but J was terrified and would only take a picture in the Jeep. Then we had ice cream, copious amounts of ice cream. I think you all know what has replaced my running. . .

I love anything peanut butter so I went with a Reese’s shake.

Have you ever broke a bone and had to have a cast?


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. Oh hands down I would say the Reese’s shake is the right choice. If that is an option I will always go with that. Otherwise plain chocolate. Jackson looks like a natural on that treadmill. I think I know what’s in store for him down the road πŸ™‚

    Reese’s shake sounds phenomenal. I usually need some sort of chocolate in a shake, but I haven’t even had a milkshake in years I don’t think…that’s so sad…may have to do something about that πŸ™‚
    Hope you are feeling better…stomach bug = no bueno!

  3. If given the option I always go with Reese’s everything. I’ve never had a cast before, but I suspect it would be awful. That pic of J cuddling his cousin is too cute!

  4. Aw, poor girl, stomach bug + no running right now? I am pained for you… πŸ™‚ But you’re right, it’s a sign that you need to continue to stay off your leg! Yes to that milkshake! On vacation I shared a Butterfinger milkshake with Rebekah and it was the bestttt ever. I had forgotten how good they were.
    Nice cycling girly girl! I love your home gym!

  5. Love ice cream! And fro yo πŸ™‚ Cookie dough is my fave ice cream.

    The only bone I have broken is my finger so no cast, just a splint. Worst pillow fight ever!

  7. LOVE her pink cast. I have broken my arm…in the middle of summer…it sucked

  8. Good choice on the shake! I also really love Butterfinger ones!

  9. Hope you’re feeling better!
    Anything with peanut butter is always a hit! Or mint chocolate πŸ™‚ My son is afraid of everything too! We wanted to take him to Disneyland but figured he’d just be scared of all the characters and we’d end up having to leave. Such a scaredy cat!
