Race Eve and hammocks gone wild



Happy Friday the 13th!!! I hope it will give me good luck and not bad.  Ahhh! I’m so nervous for tomorrow’s race Drop 13. I’m so anxious to get out there and do my very best. I just wanna crush it with Heather. I uploaded a few new songs for the race and I’m not letting myself listen to them until then(I love new music while I run).

Shower-Becky G

Pills N Potions-Nicki Minaj

Run Away Heart-The Strange Familiar

I’m Ready-AJR

She Looks So Perfect-5 Seconds of Summer

Today I’m doing a 3 mile shake out run(meaning a nice, easy, short run to keep my legs fresh and ready for race morning). After I’m doing some really fun projects. It’s been too long and I’m anxious to get going and share with you guys=)

Yesterday I got to spend all day at my sister Leah’s house. Bree and my mom were there and we just played outside most of the day and I ate way too many goodies. My sister Leah’s house has the best food. So many popsicle breaks, it’s the only way to survive a 95* day. (My handsome nephews)

Oh and lots of hammock rides. My mom got the hammock ride of her life. I don’t think I’ve heard her scream like that, ever! My nephew decided to push her and some of the other nephews really crazy haha

Ended the day with a little cousin snuggling and kabobs back at my house with Josh and my dad.

Please send all your good vibes my way for this weekend. Please and thank you;)

do you do a shake out run the day before a race or rest?


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. Good luck tomorrow, you’ll do great!

    I’ve never done a shakeout run before, I usually rest up the last 24 hours. And MMM gelato!

    Good luck on your race!!! You’re gonna kill it! I try to do that with music too, save the new songs I like for running. Don’t make me choose between frozen desserts, I literally love them all equally.

  3. Best of luck tomorrow! I have done both shake out and rest before a big race. Go for it if you really need it otherwise rest those legs so they will be nice and fresh!!
