Last downhill run, baptism, and mustaches



Saturday- 9 miles outside with Heather

The Drop 13 half marathon is June 14, so about 2 weeks away. Heather and I did our last downhill run before the race. I can finally say, the downhill training is working! I finally woke up Sunday morning after my run and wasn’t completely sore. I’m hoping that translates well to race day and we can power down the canyon and smash our previous PR’s!

We had scheduled to run 10 miles, but we ran into a bit of construction and I was too tired to make up the mile, ha! Below is the windy hill we ran down.

Friday night before my run Josh, J, and I headed out to Rumbi’s. I usually get the mango salad, but I tried the Aloha Chicken Burger. It was pretty good, but I should have gone with my usual. Oh, and this is how we usually eat out. I pack J a dinner, so we don’t spend $10 on a meal he’ll take 2 bites of. Mac n’ Cheese, nectarine, and juice for the win=)

Saturday after my run(Josh was still mountain biking with his buds) I took J to a neighborhood party at the park. My church brought food, jump ropes, chalk, and kites for the whole neighborhood. We only got to stay for a bit because I forgot sunblock, momfail.

Then we headed up North to see my nephew Ike get baptized. J loves Ike and was so excited to see him and show him he was wearing ‘big boy’ pants. (PS potty training is still going well, a few accidents when he gets distracted playing but he’s learning).

I called this the ‘sampler plate’ but I ate 90% of it and then my niece helped with the rest ha

From my Instagram

Sunday was so gorgeous out. We went to church, then had dinner together where I made my 3 cheese skillet lasagna and then we soaked up the last day of the weekend.

Happy June!!

Someone please explain the mustache craze?

How did your weekend workouts 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. When I read “lasagna” my stomach literally growled out LOUD.

    I am familiar with the classic “sampler” dessert plate, basically what I call it when I want to eat all the desserts 😉 I’m glad to here your half training is going well!!

    Looks like a great weekend! Mine was really busy and totally flew by! But, no work for me for 8 weeks, so I am okay with it 🙂
    I was totally craving lasagna yesterday..and still am – might have to make one!

  4. Oh my gosh, your dessert plate looks amaaaazing!! You have to sample one of each, right? 😉

  5. Downhill training is such a good idea when you are running a race like that! I should have done more of it for Boston but I guess there’s always next time. 🙂 Can’t wait to see you crush your PR in a few weeks!
