Afternoon running, hiking, and crafts


Saturday- 2.5 mile hike Mckae + 6 mile run outside with Alisha & Mckae

Saturday morning was lazy around our house. I made some fair sconesand cocoa and woke everyone up to enjoy it with me.


Mckae and I decided to go on a hike on the trail by my house. It was such a beautiful fall day, UT doesn’t get many of those because it often skips right to winter. I’m so glad we’ve been able to enjoy outside activities a little longer.

My church had a craft day for all the women. I’m not crafty, but Mckae got into it while I ate soup and popcorn balls.


While Josh was watching college football Alisha, Mckae, and I decided to go on a run. It was gorgeous out and the perfect temperature. I can’t remember the last time I went running in the late afternoon. It was fun besides the fact that I felt a lot more tired. Glad I had company too=)

Do you run in the afternoon? Does it make you more tired?

How often do you do crafts, are you crafty?





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 hardly ever run in the afternoon either, but as the mornings start to get really cold, I tend to move more of my runs to the afternoon. While I am running I always feel like I have less energy since I have been moving all day already, but my time is usually never slower. Weird, I know. 🙂 But your Saturday sounded wonderful! I will go to church this morning with my husband, and then we are heading over to my Aunt’s and Uncle’s house to celebrate my Uncle’s birthday!

  2. Sometimes I love a late afternoon run… right before the sun goes down (or even as it is going down). The run lets me get all of those frustrations for my day out of my system and I get to enjoy the “night life” if I’m around other people who are outside in the evening 🙂
    Crafting… I wish I had more time for it and the $ to keep up with it.

  3. Running in Utah looks so beautiful!!

    I had an afternoon run this weekend too. I NEVER run in the afternoons. It went well though. I was running with someone which probably helped! Afternoon runs in the gorgeous fall weather is kind of fantastic.

    I love when the weather is perfect to run outdoors! We have been having some days in the 60s and low 70s.
