Continuing on with my day-to-day account (mailed one of these cards home every day) of my 1978 Cross America Run from June 11, 1978, to August 29, 1978, a total distance of 3,452 miles averaging 45 miles a day…
Day 3 – June 13, 1978.
Miles run = 44.
Finish location – Newell, CA.
Weather – 70 degrees.
Comments: “Finally, the flat terrain is here! The 1st two days were all mountainous. I ran with a newspaper reporter for 10 miles and he did an article on me in the largest newspaper in southern Oregon – nice picture, too. Called WHDH and other radio stations that asked us to call. Stayed the night at the base of a mountain – was afraid the bears were going to attack us! Feel pretty good!! Dave"
