Weekend Highlights and last long run



Saturday- 10 miles outside with Heather

We ran our last long run before our race this Saturday. I’m so excited to run the Drop 13 downhill race. I’m so glad we trained for the downhill, and I’m hoping for a shiny new PR. I’m not gonna lie, I’m a bit nervous since I’ve been slacking on my week day runs the last week in a half. But I’m ready to have a good taper week, and enjoy Saturday!

Our last 3 miles we really picked it up and ran 8 min miles. It felt good to be strong at the end of a 10 miler. So glad Heather and I have been able to run so much together and have similar goals.

At the turn around point

I forgot to buy any proper fuel, so Turbo fruit snacks ftw(for the win)!

Weekend Highlights

1. J finally got to pick out his Captain America shield he’s been wanting. Once he decided he wanted to potty train, I told him if he filled his chart and went #2 on the potty he could have a ‘big prize.’ He ended up doing it, and so we picked up the shield. It was one very happy boy.

2. Okay, so not much of a highlight as it was a low light but still worthy to share. We were out and about Saturday with my in laws helping Josh’s grandparents move some of their big furniture(they’re moving) and needed to stop for lunch. The only thing close and fast was Taco Bell, so of course I wanted to go all out and try the Cool Ranch Dorito taco. Well guys, it was a big disappointment. It was pretty nasty. I guess I shouldn’t be that surprised, but the concept sounded pretty darn good. Do yourself a favor and don’t eat at Taco Bell haha

3. Going out to Sushi with friends(of course I was a wimp and ordered a Bento Box because sushi terrifies me). It was fun nonetheless. Our boys played and ate snacks together and I got to love on Kandis’s newest baby boy.

4. J fell asleep in the car and snuggled with me for like 2 min. That never happens, so it was def a highlight.

5. My cousin Mckae got married! I wasn’t able to be there, but I did get to take some of her bridals for her. I’m so glad some of them turned out since I’m not a professional by any means.

6. I inherited a few furniture items from Josh’s grandparents since they’re downsizing, and also from my MIL this weekend. I have some fun ideas planned for them and can’t wait. Here’s the entry table before I add my touch to it. Can’t wait to show you the finished projects.

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. I remember all the late night Taco Bell runs in college. Now it just grosses me out. Ha. Good luck on your race next weekend!

  2. Hooray for #2! I have never eaten at Taco Bell, but I wouldn’t mind getting a group together and ordering all the breakfasts so I could try a bite of each. Just a bite though. that would be enough.

  3. Holy cow she is a stunning bride!

    Oh man. I’m so sad you dont love Taco Bell. Haha, I don’t care for any of their weird dorito varieties, but I do love their classic staples! The double decker taco is my weakness.

    Okay, so tell me more about this race! Is the whole thing downhill? That’s my kind of race! Hopefully you get your PR!

  4. And I now have a craving for fruit snacks, haha! I used to eat multiple packages a day back in high school and college. Somehow I broke the habit…

  5. Those bridal photos you took are so pretty! The highlight of my weekend was my sister’s graduation on Friday and graduation party yesterday. The weather was so nice and it was fun to spend a big chunk of the weekend outside!

  6. Those are awesome photos!! Sounds like you had a great weekend! My weekend was filled with time outside and hanging out with family!

    Those pictures are lovely! I love the bride’s dress. I have not tried the Dorito taco, but my husband has multiple times.

    Yay for a final long run! You’re going to rock your race!! My weekend was busy with lots of running around, but so much fun. We redid my daughter’s room yesterday which was a lot of fun!
