Tired legs and a OK onion soup

I did a 4 mile run this morning and boy my legs were tired!!! Yep, that deserved the three exclamation points. 🙂 I’m thinking the legs must have been tired from my great run yesterday, but it was also a long day at work… until 9:30pm.  Which means eating was a bit scattered throughout the…
