Red velvet cupcakes, can’t beat em’


Tuesday- 3 miles on treadmill(POM: 11/60 miles) + lots of stretching

I’m still really sore from the leg workout I did on Monday. After yesterday’s slow run, I spent some time stretching. This is one of my favorite stretches for my tooshie.

J felt like running with me so who put on my Brooks and ran around beside me.

it's hard not to get a blurry pic of him these days

On a random note, I got an email saying the Haunted Half race pics were up. I find a couple, this one is my favorite=)

We invite their parents to come, and each girl talks a bit about a project they’ve been working on from their book Personal Progress.

I was in charge of the dessert committee and I made these.


They were so simple and delicious. My MIL made them for the family a couple of weeks ago and they were a hit. The dessert table did not disappoint.


Red Velvet fan?

Have you ever purchased race pictures?ย I haven’t, I wish they would just include them in the price of the race.


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.

    And I totally agree with you – races should INCLUDE the dang pictures in their already pricey fees. We should make that happen together. Change the world and what not!

  8. I have never purchased my own race pictures, but my parents have so that is always nice. ๐Ÿ™‚ I agree with you, they need to be included in the race price! That would be so expensive to always purchase your race pictures!
