In The Mist Of Niagara Falls

Nearly a year ago now, my wife successfully ran her first half marathon. She did it in Canada, too, so maybe – I don’t know – with the metric system and all, it’s not a half marathon. Kidding! While she ran with a friend, I walked along the river and admired the falls with some […]
