Shoes can wear multiple hats


Monday- 6 miles on stationary bike + 8 min abs + soccer game

I’m still having computer problems so I’ve been using Josh’s old computer that isn’t that fastest. I’m still reading your blogs, but commenting takes ages! Sorry…

Shoes that wear multiple hats

Odd title I know, but I’ve been thinking about my shoes a lot. Yep, my good ol’ running shoes. I miss running in them everyday and it’s even weird for me to think about how much I used to run. I feel like I’ve lost a lot of my running strength. On the other hand, I’ve really loved what my body is still capable of doing. And you know what? Your running shoes can double as. . .

biking shoes. Talking to your sister on the phone really makes the time fly.Yesterday I had only planned to do a short warmup and ended up going almost 8 miles on the bike while talking to my sis. I talk to my sisters or my mom  daily. Sometimes multiple times a day. I love our conversations.


soccer shoes. I love the friendships I’ve made through soccer. Monday night I made my first goal of the season and it was so fun. I love laughing and getting pumped up with music. Nothing like a little competition=)

I go in today to get x rays on my legs. They’ll measure my legs and see exactly how much longer my left leg is so they can make my shoe insert. I hope the insert works wonders and I’m back to running. Until then, my running shoes will wear different ‘hats’ and become my ‘active’ shoes=)

what are some other activities your running shoes have been doing besides running?

How’s your Wednesday?

I love Wednesday’s because Josh works from home. It’s always fun to have him around during the day, I’m sure we’re more of a distraction though. Oh and just to share another photo of Powell with you, these boys are the cutest!




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. Jackson probably thought he was the big time steering the boat, huh? So cute, I love it! Lately my extra running shoes have been doubling as shoes to get me around New York! I walk so much here to get from place to place that it is way better for my feet to be using an older pair of running shoes than flip flops or Toms.

  2. My running shoes are literally dusty in my closest. I just bought them when I got injured so I don’t want to wear them too much for non-running activities. Luckily I have about 20 other pairs of sneakers, so I’m all set. I really hope the x-ray gives you a little more information and that the inserts can be made quickly!

    I miss playing soccer- it was so fun! And I’m one of those who just wears the same pair of shoes for anything whether it’s running/spinning/shopping whatever

  4. My running shoes double as my cross-training shoes on days I have strength class because sometimes they have us run stairs/sprints and I don’t want my old shoes to mess up my legs. It’s amazing how protective us runners are of our legs. I try not to wear my running shoes when I’m out during errands though. Only for running/working out. My Wednesday is good so far! Finished a run and now I’m trying to figure out if it’s going to rain or not so that I can plan the rest of my day.

    I just got back to work from getting x-rays literally 10 minutes ago! Also- I’ve done that ab workout on Nike fit club the last 2 days!

  6. I like Wednesdays too because we’re half-way through the week. 🙂

  7. Awwww those boys are so cute! Hope the xrays go very well and the insert helps you!
