So Running….

So I haven’t been running much at all. This wasn’t totally on purpose, but it’s happened. You know what happens when you take an unexpected break from running? It’s a little bit hard to get back in the groove. You know what else happens? I usually go on a run and it’s awesome and then I’m all, “I love running!!!” all over again ha So I’m hoping while you’re reading this I’m on a run and I feel like a million bucks after….

Since I haven’t been running, what have I been up to? A whole lot of fun let me tell ya.

Like hunting snails with J and his cousins. J checks for snails every day and finds like 30. They gross me out, but something about him having fun with him makes me want to get this sign for his room.

I’ve also been day dreaming about this house and how I’m going to transform my current house into it. . . somehow(stay tuned).

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’m hoping to get in a little 5-6k tonight once the girls go to bed. When I’m not running I am playing with my girls, making meals for them, taking them places – oh the joys of motherhood πŸ™‚ But I wouldn’t change a thing!

    Oh – and I don’t like snails either.

    Looks like all good stuff you’ve been busy with πŸ™‚ And breaks are good for you when you aren’t training for anything!
    I’m about to hit the 4 month break mark (insane, yes?) so I’ve been doing a lot of biking and a little yoga. Marathon training starts soon, so I am going to start a little run/walk combo to ease my hip back into it.

  3. I haven’t run at all since my half at the end of June! But I have been swimming, biking, and teaching yoga sculpt. I’m thinking I should start a couch to 5k training plan just to keep the mileage low.

    THAT SIGN! I know it from somewhere! Like I either saw it when someone I know was designing their child’s room or I actually know whose house that is from, but I can’t remember. All I know is that I love it so much. I’m a typography nerd.

    I hope you get out for a great run today! I missed my 3 miler this morning, but am going at lunch…so let’s motivate each other to get back out there! πŸ™‚ I need to teach my daughter to take foot selfies!

  5. So cute! I am scared to have sons because I can’t handle gross things like snails. haha I am doing yoga tonight! Because I can’t run, I’ve been doing more strength training and trying different forms of cardio.

  6. I hope you have a rockin’ run today!! When I’m not running…let’s see…I’m usually teaching spin classes, at work, or on my couch with a glass of wine. haha

    That sign is so cute! And I feel ya on the dreaming about houses – we bought a house in SF and are working on fixing it up and… I’m gonna need to re read your post on refinishing your cabinets. I want (no, NEED) white cabinets! πŸ˜‰
