Crazy CourseTurkey Trot

Saturday we all woke up feeling good, so I brought J downstairs with me while I did a quick 3 miles. I looked out the window and saw snow, a whole bunch of it! I had planned on running a Crazy Course 5k with my friend Vanessa. I was pretty hesitant since I don’t have very good cold weather gear. Fortunately, Vanessa encouraged me to take on the adventure. I wore 2 pairs of pants, 3 shirts, gloves, a beanie, and a hood. The Crazy Course Turkey Run in Draper is a 3.3 mile run over trails, road, neighborhoods, and some train tacks. Ya, it was wild.


Before, waiting in my car where it was warm
part of the trail, covered in snow
train tracks and mud
A big hill of about a foot of snow, Vanessa rocked it!(and a sign that we’re supposed to be able to read)

I ended up winning my age group and getting a turkey! That was my goal, and had told my mom I really wanted to win the turkey haha Once I realized how crazy wet, snowy, cold, and bizarre the course was I didn’t think I’d win. Fortunately, my age group was pretty small=)

It was a great local race with awesome raffle prizes, long sleeve tech shirt, and the opportunity to win a turkey or pumpkin pie! I had a great time with Vanessa! Pile on the Miles: 43 miles

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.
