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.

    ooh, that recipe makes me wish I had a crockpot. Love the mom jeans πŸ˜‰

  3. Aw you two are cute!! Love that picture of J and I am going to try that recipe! I do a similar one where I have a chicken, a jar of mild salsa and a package of taco seasoning. Then I usually end up putting avocado on it after πŸ™‚ Not a huge cilantro fan. I always forget to tell them not to put it on at Cafe Rio.

  4. You are hot to trot in those mom jeans! haha that crockpot meal sounds fantastic! Happy Monday!
