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"
