Day 771 -- Kooskia

The South Fork River Ranch has a Kooskia address. I'm not sure where it is, relative to Kooskia. In fact, I am still several miles north of Kooskia. So maybe I'm near the ranch, maybe not. In any case, it looks like a fine place to stay the night, particularly if you like horses. Their mission is
Good horsemanship and healthy, happy horses. Participation in all levels and areas of activities which will demonstrate the versatility, willingness and forgiving attitude of the gaited horse breeds.

I had to do the treadmill today. The indoor track was closed for a track meet. I could have taken the day off, but the track is closed again tomorrow (and I want to watch football), and the whole gym is closed on Monday, in honor of the King holiday. So, today, the treadmill.

It's been a long time since I ran on a treadmill. I figured that it's not as hard as real running, so I started out at a fast pace, that I couldn't keep up. But overall, I did "4.6 miles" in just over 45 minutes, which would have been a pretty good run, especially after twelve miles yesterday.

Found your blog from Virtual Run Across America ... your photos are a hoot! I actually sat here for a minute wondering if you were actually in the snowy mountains in shorts :-)

Thanks for keeping track of the miles! I thought I had it right at 270! Nice run on the treadmill, treadmills suck, but they fit in when mother nature doesn't work out right!
