Running Outside> anything else


Wednesday- 6 miles outside with Heather

Oh man, I sure love Wednesdays. I mean, can’t everyone just work from home all the time? I love that Josh gets to on Wednesdays so we can hang out aaannndd so I can run outside in beautiful weather with Heather. We kept it an easy pace today so Saturday we can do some intervals(I’m so nervous!).

When I got back home, my mom was just finishing up her walk too. We got our painting clothes on and finished the deck! It took a long time(about 4 hours) but it’s done and looks 1,000 times better. It’s amazing what paint can do, this house has gotten such a face lift with paint alone.

I didn’t prep the rusted rod iron at all. I just used the same Restoleum paint that I used to paint the outside lamps, and fire places. It was tedious but I saved money, and it really freshened the deck up.

We’re still working on the yard, and will be for years to come. But it’s fun to make something shine and have my mom and sister helping=)

Then this happened. Salmon, I have missed you. Thank you mom.

To top off an already great day, Josh and I had a couples massage. We always wait for a City Deal to pop up on the place we like, best way to go!

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. Massages are the best treat in the whole wide world! I have been dying for one lately. Maybe I will splurge on one soon 😉

    wow, your deck looks so nice now! I agree outdoor runs are the best. I’m a seafood hater, I’ll eat it if I have to but I’m just not into the texture and flavor.
