52 down, zero to go - I'm done!

Finally! This was my last self-supported weekly ultramarathon (meaning a training run longer than 42.2 km or 26.2 miles). 

The weather was nice and everything went well.

I ran 47.4 km (29.5 miles) in 5:54.

I'm not sure if it this such a great idea if racing performance means anything, but at least it kept me running. My total mileage in 2008 is 5377.7 km (3341.5 miles) - averaging 14.7 km (9.1 miles) a day for 366 days. I don't think I've ever run more in one year.

I've certainly had my share of injuries during the year, but magically they have all disappeared by now. I'm healthy and in pretty good condition.

52 ultramarathons down, zero to go - I'm done!
