Day 667 -- Last Stop In California

If I am not mistaken, I'm out of Smith River NRA, and not quite to Oregon. From the Del Norte County Chamber of Commerce, here's a shot of a campground somewhere in the county. No idea if it's particularly close to where I am.

I ran 9 miles today, at a very brisk pace. The first 4.5 was 42 minutes, which is pretty darn quick for me. I slowed down considerably on the second lap, but still finished under 9:30 per mile. It was a little cooler, but I still managed to work up a sweat.

I passed 1000 miles for the year today. Last year, I passed 1000 miles on August 5, so I'm just right on the same pace. OK, technically, I'm a day behind, but I don't think that a day one way or the other really makes any difference.
