It is so nice to have Steve home. Ben and Madi have been on Fall Break all week so it's been so nice having us all together. Today our weather is absolutely beautiful! Around noon I went over to the Salem lake to get a run in today. No headphones today.... so it was just me and the outdoors listening to the deafening sound of trees blowing around. I only ran 1.75 miles and it took me 20 minutes...I am not a fast runner. But it was very windy and there were hills. Then I just enjoyed myself with a walk afterwards. During all this I was thinking about my friend Susy. Tomorrow she is running with 10,000 others in the Air Force Marathon. Talk about some serious girl power! Here is her link, you can go wish her good luck!

Jeni you are so sweet! Thanks for all of your encouragment you ALWAYS give to me. It sounds like you had the perfect run. Isn't it funny how much fun running is. I read somewhere that you never regret going for a run but you always regret skipping it. I think you need to sign up for a half marathon. You are ready to take the next step : ) I have seen your endurance and know that you could do it once you decided you wanted too.
My family enjoyed the lentil soup recipe last night! It was wonderful for a cool Fall evening. We got home late from soccer and it was waiting for us : ) Thanks for sharing your recipes with all of us bloggers!

I wish I could get out and run but my tread mill will do for now! Running without a headphone can be nice and just hear nature!
Have a great weekend!
