Is leaving a 10 year-old and 8 year-old home alone child endangerment? If so, what is the penalty in Illinois?

Want to leave kids alone for 45 minutes or so while I go running in the neigborhood while my wife is abroad.
I love my kids and wouldn't knowingly endanger them and I don't believe this would endanger them but I guess I have to think about Illinois law and whether I should break it.
