Nebraska – cold and windy one day, beautiful the next! Yep, today was a perfect day for running – no wind, sunny skies, and moderate temperatures.

I began with 21 km before stopping at the Chadron State Park, where the girls had set up a small picnic by a pond. That was a very nice interlude in a beautiful setting.

I then ran into the town of Chadron, where I had a quick lunch at our motel. However, I forgot that when my watch comes into close proximity with my computer, it downloads the data. That’s why I have two Garmin links today – one for pre-lunch, and one for post-lunch.

The afternoon saw me cover another 16 km, which leaves me only about 10 km from the South Dakota state border. I’ll cross the state line tomorrow morning.

I’d like to thank the Economy 9 Motel in Chadron for providing a discount and an extra room for last night and tonight. The Nebraska generosity appears to be boundless. Hopefully South Dakota will be the same.
