I need your help!


Wednesday- walk outside with my mom 3 miles

My mom walks up a large hill everyday for her workout. Yesterday I thought I woke up early enough to go with her, so I quickly texted her that I wanted to come along. I didn’t hear back, so I thought she was just taking her time, so I went about my morning routine only to realize she had already left! I started up the hill and found her on the way down and she did the whole walk again with me. She did a total of 5 miles, yup she’s a pretty awesome mom.

I know, we look too hot to handle;)

We quickly packed up the car, and drove down with my MIL to the water park. We met up with my SIL and had a blast until it got way too crowded and over 90*! J and his cousin have so much fun together. This age is so fun for me. 7 peaks has a bunch of water slides and J loves going down them. I’m like a big kid all day, I feel so lucky to have these days to spend with my little man.

When we got home J went to bed and I got cleaned up because my friends were coming over to catch up. I forgot to take any pics, but just know it was fun;)

Okay, this is where I need all the help I can get. If you follow me on Instagram you know a little about my friend Shannon who just adopted an adorable little boy named Jack. Adoption is very close to my heart as it is with most people who have seen the amazing miracle and joy it can bring to families.

Shannon and her family have waited patiently to add to their family and are so incredibly happy they get to call Jack their own and Lydia can be an older sister. If you’re not aware, adoption can be incredibly expensive. I want to help Shannon and her family in any way I can, so what better way than to organize a race in their behalf?

Is there anyone in UT or out of state that has any tips, tricks, or volunteer work they can offer? Anything would help, thank you sooooo much!

do you like water slides?

can you help guide me in the right direction on organizing a race?

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. That is wonderful!!!! I would start with reaching out to organizers of other local races. And start looking into what location you might want to have the race at. More than likely you will need some kind of permit, insurance, possibly paying law enforcement, it can get very expensive. But I have faith that you will find that right spot and have it all work out!

    That is so incredible of you to do that for a friend! If I lived nearby, I would totally help 🙂
    I love that you live close enough to see your mom everyday and workout with her! So awesome!

  3. Oh man, I wish I could run this race! How cool! I hope you get lots of info and feedback to organize something awesome!
