15 down, 37 to go

I ran 44.0 km (27.3 miles) today in a kind of strange weather: it wasn't raining, but humidity was 97%. It was cloudy and foggy all day. The temperature was +7 degrees C (45 F).

Total time 4:23 means that my average pace was just under 6 minutes per km, which is quite ok, considering I ran lots of hills. I even conquered the biggest hill in town, which I've named the beast. It's not a real mountain, but the steepest sections can provide nice challenges for tired legs.

My new Salomon XT Wings feel definitely faster than the North Face Arnuva 50 Boa, which I should have thrown away a long time ago - they were completely wasted after 1800 km of winter running.

15 down, 37 ultramarathons to go!
