Running questions and randomness

Happy Friday! Did the week fly by for anyone else? Mine sure did, but then again they’re usually just a blur when you’re a stay at home mom. A crazy awesome blur(;

I’ve really been trying to cut back my running since I’m not training for anything. I think it’s really important for our bodies to have rest days and I’m really not in the mood to get an injury any time soon ha But if you’re in need of a booty kickin workout check out my post here.

Yesterday, I felt so domestic. My older sister Leah really wanted to make some freezer jam and planned a whole day for all the sisters(sad Neeley couldn’t make it) to make strawberry jam. I really wish my SIL’s Jessica, Sarah, and Celeste could fly here and make some with us. I’ve been trying to convince their families to move here forever. Something about their jobs not being in UT, blah blah blah.

It went fairly quickly with all of us doing a different job. 4 hours and 63 containers later, we have freezer jam! Now I just need to make a bunch of homemade bread(;

Anyone interested in the recipe?

Jackson and the rest of the cousins played outside and ate popsicles. Summer life, it’s the best.

As the day rolled on, storm clouds showed up and it thundered and rained the rest of the night. I LOVE nights like those where you can be safe in your home and listen to the rain.

So I got my Garmin 10 for Mother’s day and I love it. I’ve been wanting to do a review on it, but I cannot figure out how to link it to my computer to see all the stats. Anyone wanna help this blonde runner out?

what are you weekend running plans?

anyone doing a ragnar race soon?

any questions you have for me? running, life, religion? what you want more or less of? Let me know, I wanna hear them!


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.

    woah, that’s a lot of jam! Yes to the recipe please 🙂

    Look at you making jam! That’s awesome! When I plug my garmin into my computer, the program just automatically opens. Do you have a mac or pc? Maybe go to “computer” and see if it’s on there – like where you would see your phone when you plug it in. Does that make sense?

  3. Holy cow, that is A LOT of jam!! And yes please on the recipe!

    That’s a lot of jam! I have the same Garmin and haven’t figured that out. If you have “snip it” on your computer you can take a picture of what you want and upload it that way.
    No ragnar race but I’m running the 10k EPIC Canadian race tomorrow!!! eek!

  5. I love homemade jam! I plug my Garmin in and the data uploads on

    • when I plug it in, a window pop ups but nothing happens. Do you have to download garminconnect?

      • I don’t think so. I just went to the website and created an account, and it recognized that my device was plugged in. I have a 210 though, so maybe it’s different? You might have to call Garmin tech support. I’ve called them before and they’re actually super helpful.
