What a great day for a run! I headed off to Stone Mountain to do the five mile loop and loved every moment of it. The weather was about 65 degrees, sunny and just beautiful!
Lately, I have become a fan of the silent run. You know, no ipod. This is something new for me as I was formerly in the ipod club. I couldn't imagine running without one. I still like them on 15-20 mile runs but really have come to enjoy just running in silence lately on the shorter runs. Listening to my feet hit the pavement and my lungs gasping for air on the hills... Seriously, give it a try one time. You might like it :)
Before I went out running, I put the makings for chicken noodle soup in the crock pot. CR loves this soup. If you are looking for a good recipe to try, give this one a whirl as it is so easy.
Easy Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup
In a crock pot, layer in the following:
one onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
1/4 t thyme
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper
12 oz bag of frozen peas and carrots
On top of this add:
3 uncooked chicken breasts
6 cups of water
Cook on low for 8 hours (or high for 4). Pull the chicken breasts out, shred the meat and add back to the pot. Add 3 cups of noodles (uncooked - I use elbow noodles but you can use whatever you have on hand - I won't judge). I also add another 2-3 cups of water at this point. Cook for another 30-45 minutes on low or until noodles are tender. Enjoy :)
Hope everyone has a nice weekend. I am getting back on the bike tomorrow. There is a charity ride / cookout at a bike shop in Dacula. Hope they have a nice turnout!
