Where are all the runners? | The Dalles

Since moving the The Dalles, Oregon a little over a year ago, I have been struggling with what to do with my life.

A little walk around the middle of the track near by the house today. It was a beautiful spring day. Elijah even wore his glasses for a few minutes before taking them off.
