Running is free therapy


Saturday- another 4 miles outside with Heather + arm workout from NTC


I love running for so many reasons. One reason, is that it’s free therapy. If I run alone I have my thoughts and I can think and solve a lot of problems during those miles. When I run with friends, we chat about deeper things. As the miles tick on, the more the words just spill out. For me, it’s so therapeutic. I’m grateful for those heart to heart conversations.

I wore my new shirt I got from my SIL for Christmas and my new jacket I got from my MIL (both are from Nike). I love how long they are(cover my backside) and how lightweight the shirt and jacket were.

The rest of our Saturday was spent catching up on laundry and relaxing as a family. I love days where we get to just be our little family and putt around the house.

Silly faces while we played Ninja Turtles


J ‘read’ some new books while I worked on my 2014 goals.

What’s one thing you’ve been running for?

Do you make goals for the New Year?

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.

    I definitely consider running to be a free therapy for myself, hoping to save lots of money this way 😉 and a big yes to new year’s resolutions, I never miss an opportunity to make goals and lists

  2. I’m running for training…obviously, but I’m also running because it’s the only thing keeping me happy/sane while I slowly freeze here in Chicago. It’s like the one time of day I’m guaranteed to leave the house haha. I am making goals for the New Year and will be sharing them next week!

  3. I’ve made BIG resolutions in the past but never really stuck to them, so I’m excited to make small, manageable goals for 2014! I’m working on them right now 🙂 You’re picture of Thai food makes me really crave curry and Pad Thai – two of my favorites!

  4. I definitely run for my sanity. Also to work off at least some of the treats I like to eat 😉
    I don’t usually make goals at the New Year but maybe I’ll set some running goals for the year. That sounds like a good idea.

  5. Loved Man of Steel! Not sure if it was actually that good, or if it was how good looking Superman was… 😉 I make goals for the new year, but I never really plan anything out. It’s sort of like, hmm I think I’ll do that next year! Which is weird b/c I’m a total control freak!
