Comments: “My knees still bother me…they tighten up so bad I can’t bend them at all. As a result, the going was a little rough. If I can accept the pain for a few more days, I’m sure it will work itself out.”

    Feet – surprisingly, seem to be in good shape!

Comments: “My other companion, Kent Hawley met up with us on his bicycle! He peddled from Reno, NV to Delta, Utah, about 400 miles! It’s good to have him with us. Stayed in motel for a change. Hope you guys are still running at lunch.”

Day 19 – June 29, 1978.
Miles run = 42.0.
Finish location – In the desert.
Weather – 95 degrees.

Comments: “We are 50-miles from the nearest town so have to stay in the desert for the evening.  This means no bath and as a result aching muscles the next day. Today I felt a little like Superman. I wanted to run 50+ miles but I decided to wait till after the Rockies.”
