Guest Post

Hi Brooke and Jane Readers!

My name is Sharsti and I’m the blogger behind the Sugar Plum Runner. I love writing about my workouts, recipes, recent DIY projects, and of course my family. I’m lucky enough to be a stay at home mom to my almost 3 year old Jackson and wife to my handsome hubby Josh.


I’m honored to be guest posting and can’t wait to share with you a great workout that will kick your booty.  I promise you will want to kill me and thank me all at the same time after you complete this. Of course my first love is running, but I also love circuits so why not combine them?

If you have a treadmill great. You can set up your circuit at the gym, at home, or even outside. You’ll need a 1 mile loop, weights or soup cans(whatever you have), and motivation to get it done! In this workout I’ve combined all of my favorite moves that work out multiple areas at the same time.

*I convinced my little sis to photograph me doing all the moves, as a result I’m laughing in most of them because nothing can be too serious with her(:

Start out with a 1 mile warm up jog

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.
