This is Eli

A blog about Eli. A blog about survival – and by that, I mean life!

I started running again. It’s an effort to avoid head explosion, which would be messy and unfortunate.

I’d say more, except…OMG what happened to Lake Hefner?

Foster's: Australian for drought.

Lake Hefner...sort of

This lake is 10 miles around. That’s a lot of evaporation.

New trash...oi

Ronald surfs on a cup left at the bottom of an evaporated lake.

"Climate change?" Oh that's cute. I'd tell you what I think but my home "dried up" and I'm "dead."

Dead crawdad and some weeds

Please human, can I have a sip from your water bottle? I’m parched — crawdad exoskeleton

What an environmental disaster!

Back to me.

I can hardly run two miles, but it feels good to get outdoors. I’ve enlisted my bestie from Texas to run the OKC Memorial Half Marathon in April with me. I’m not going to put money down on those alleged plans just yet.
