Running in the heat is no joke


thursday-6 miles outside (old temple route)

It’s Friday! I know you’re all thinking how can I be so excited it’s Friday when every day is pretty much Friday for a stay at home mom. But you would be wrong. Yes everyday is pretty awesome, but the weekend means Josh is home to play and I don’t have to cook dinner, whoo hoo!!! So, let me continue, it’s Friday!!!

Let’s talk about some Friday favs…

1. Surprising my good friend Kendal with a baby shower/girls night. She’s having her 2nd baby girl and it was such a fun night spent at Olive Garden.

2. Wendy’s salad with my sisters. I feel so incredibly blessed that I have family here(both from my side and Josh’s) and we get to see them so often.

Yesterday while J was at preschool I thought I would go on a run. If I’m going to run the Haunted Half, then I need to probably get some longer runs in(I’m just running it with a friend, not for time). I decided to run my 6 mile route I used to run all the time in my old house since his preschool is up there. Um, someone remind me to never run after 9am when it’s hot out! Apparently UT doesn’t want to feel like fall anymore and it went back to Summer. It was close to 90* out and I didn’t bring water.

Nice little self timer shot for ya;)

Luckily there was a park with a water fountain at mile 5. After that I pretty much walked the rest of the way. Early morning runs for me from now on!

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.

    It’s hard running in the heat! Good for you. It depends on how far I run but I usually just drink water after all runs. If I am home, I drink soy chocolate milk. If it’s a hot one or long run then I drink Vega electrolyte drink.
    Friday favs: breakfast with my girls and husband, blue sky’s (today) and knowing it’s the weekend!

    It’s totally turned to summer again here in Denver too. We’ve been at about 90 every day this week! I think a cold front is moving in tomorrow though – I can’t wait!!! I love fall and everything about it, but it just doesn’t feel like it yet!
