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 4 – June 14, 1978.
Miles run = 45.
Finish location – Canby, CA.
Weather – 70 to 80 degrees.
Comments: “Stayed the night in a small campsite…we were the only ones there. Lonely but pretty country. I’ve been averaging 7-minute miles and doing about 25 miles in 4 hours in the morning and the last 15 or so real easy in the afternoon. My quads are tight but what do you expect after running 40-miles a day! We are in no-wheres-ville!!
