I thought Karen was going to come get me after she did her speedwork.  I waited for her outside of Wendy's house (hoping she'd join us).  No sign of Karen, but we got to visit with our other neighbor.  I was just about ready to abandon my plan of running when Diane L. ran by so I decided to catch up to her and we ran together for 3 miles around the block.  AP: 10:50

Karen and Amanda met me halfway from our homes and we ran 6 miles together accessing MCT on 800 E then west to 1200 W and turned back home.  AP: 10:30.  I can tell Karen was holding back to jogging pace and I was having a hard time keeping up.  I am getting fat and slow while she's getting skinny and fast! :)

We went to one of our sister missionaries, Sis. Sorensen's homecoming!  It was so great to see Sis. Schwab bringing Michelle and her 3 yo son, Ainsley (they moved from Sydney recently) to meet Sis. Levine who found them on a train and taught them.  It was a miracle that they were found but Sis. Levine got transferred and subsequently was hit by a car in Sept and returned home (not released by neither of her stake presidents).  She has recovered from her massive brain injury (nothing was broken) and now doing outpatient rehab.  Well, Michelle and Ainsley moved to Sugar House where Sis. Levine has therapy 3x a week.  Now Michelle wants her to resume teaching them!  Love tender mercies and miracles.

Larry and I received a new calling to serve together as teachers of the temple prep. class.  Tonight was our first lesson.  We had 6 "students' came to our home.  It's so great to be able teach with Larry these young people!  :)
