Distance today = 50.66 km; Total distance = 16,458.27 km; Location = Aranda de Duero – 41 40.253′ N, 03 41.098′ W; Start time = 0901, Finish time = 1721


The run today began in the fog, but it soon burned off to a partly cloudy day. There wasn’t too much fatigue from yesterday’s long run, although the legs were a little heavy late in the day.

I ran most of the day through the Duero Valley. It’s quite a wine region, and I finished the day in its capital, Aranda. I’m looking forward to trying one of the local reds tonight.

Penafiel, which I ran through early in the day, is certainly to be recommended to any tourist to the region. There are some ancient buildings, none better than a hill top castle in fine condition. There are several other hill top castles and forts in the surrounding area too. It makes for very enjoyable running.
