Keeping up with the boys

Monday-5 miles outside

How’s everyone feeling after a long weekend? The best part about those is how fast this week will feel. I’m not wishing away this week, actually I would like to make it go as slow as possible. J starts his first day of joy school today!! I can’t believe it, and I want to soak up all these feelings and our first big milestone together. I’ll share pics tomorrow.

Any who, my Labor Day started with a 5 mile run.
Anyone get so annoyed with this??

After finally locating satellites I was happily running when a group of high school cross country boys passed me… Oh no they didn’t! I stuck right with them for 2 miles until I was at my turn around. 8:15 miles, and it felt good! Amazing what I can run when I feel competition ha

(And yes I took this creepy pic of them, don’t judge)

When I got home Josh and I did lots of yard work. We are still gutting our yard and hoping to get it all cleaned out by the time winter rolls around. We were pretty exhausted. J happily rode his bike around and found snails.
We tried finding some good sales but everything was so picked over, no luck:/
That night we went to my parents for a BBQ. Food was great and it was so fun to have my parents and in laws together.

(Sorry for the creepy eyes)

Overall, such a great weekend. Now I’m off to take way too many photos of J on his first day of preschool!

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.

    So exciting that J is off to school today – he is going to be in kindergarten before you know it!!
    Looks like a great weekend. We had some friends in town so it was a busy one here for sure!

  4. I think most runners are competitive. I’m more competitive with me vs myself. And as long as my friends aren’t in my age group we’re good. Ha, kidding!!

  5. I’m competitive. But more so against myself!
