Great finds and foam rolling queen


wednesday- 4 miles on treadmill-progression run

Countdown to race: 2 days!!! I’m finally getting nervous. I haven’t been nervous for a race in so long because I haven’t ‘raced’ one in awhile. I’m focusing on getting hydrated this week, so I’m going to continue that and cut out foods with a lot of fiber. For me, veggies and diary(I’m slightly lactose intolerant) are the 2 main foods I stay away from 2 days leading up to a race, so far it’s worked=) I’ve also had this as my new best friend ha

Do you ever have those days that turn out to be super productive and successful without planning it? Yesterday was awesome like that for me and my mom. We headed out to just look at a few stores for fun and we ended up finding some great things at great prices. Like this mirror at TJ Maxx for $40!

After we ate lunch, my sister Bree came over. She’s been gone/busy the last few weeks and I was having baby M withdrawals. It was good to be reunited.

We headed out to our deck to do our nails, and J wanted to participate. It escalated quickly haha

Bree went home and Josh, J and I headed to Kneaders for dinner. The Turkey, Bacon, Avocado is the best. ever.

Our day wasn’t over, we got to go to the pool and meet up with friends. It was such a great night. Seriously, have I mentioned how much I really enjoy Summer?

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 don’t foam roll too often but I think I should! We are celebrating my daughter’s 4th birthday this weekend and father’s day fun 🙂 Good luck with your race!

  2. I cracked up at J’s nail painting! To be honest, he does a better job than I do sometimes 🙂

    I’m really really really trying to remember to foam roll after every run, it just feels like I’m in such a rush sometimes to get ready for the next thing!

    I’m foam rolling today, it should be…….fun. If I’m being good I’ll get in a little everyday but I try to have at least one day a week where I spend a good amount of time rolling.

  4. So cute about the nail polish! This weekend I’m working all weekend which is a total bummer because it is suppose to be really nice :(. I foam roll about 2 times a week and I see such a big difference! Good luck with race prep!! Your going to do awesome!

    My foam roller and I are BFF’s 🙂
    I seriously love it, and I travel with the stick (easier to fit in my suitcase- haha)…summer is the best, but it goes so fast!!!

  6. Being nervous is a great sign that you are going to do really well! 😉

    My dad is coming to town for Father’s Day…and I’ll probably do a long run. 26.2 training has started once again! Looking fwd to #11 in the fall.
