Spartan Race Giveaway!


Monday- 3 miles on treadmill + lunges and squats

I needed to change up my treadmill workout yesterday, so after each mile I would do a combo of 50 lunges and squats. I love mixing it up!

After cleaning up and doing our grocery shopping, we headed outside to do some bubbles. J loved it and me and my mom loved sitting out in the sun. This week UT is supposed to have gorgeous weather, you bet I’m gonna soak it all up!

Good weather calls for some grilling, so I made some delicious grilled pizza. Basil, mozzarella and olives is my fav! And of course, my first watermelon of the season. The smell of watermelon has to be one of the best smells.

I love making pizzas because J likes to be involved whenever I’m in the kitchen. Pizzas are so fun for him to make all by himself.

The rest of the night we spent as a family in this beautiful spring weather.

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 love obstacle races because of the challenge. It doesn’t hurt that they’re so much fun!

  2. This would be fun to do with my husband, he loves this kind of stuff!

  3. Now I have a MAJOR craving for watermelon!! And don’t even get me started on the grilled pizza. I have been wanting to try that for about 2 years but have never made it. I’m sure it does not help that I do not own a grill :(. Next time that I am home at my parents house I WILL be making it.

  4. haha…I think I’ll skip the Spartan. But those pizzas…I’ll go for those!

    I had NO idea I wasn’t even following you on wordpress. That’s so weird, I surely check every day! And girl, I had my first watermelon of the season this weekend and OMG I am so happy they’re back in season. It’s like a huge party for my taste buds! The only thing I forgot is that they are so so filling – so eating a ton before dinner was not wise. LOL. I have always wanted to do a spartan race, or something like it, I think I’d be pretty good at it! I love a challenge.

  6. Good to see a fellow Spartan here ๐Ÿ™‚ Too bad the Spartan Race doesn’t do any giveaways in Canada. My first race is less than 3 weeks away ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m hoping to do the Trifecta this year *fingers crossed*. Good luck to all the participants, nonetheless ๐Ÿ˜€


  7. I would love to do this with my friends!
