Running in Barcelona

I am traveling this week. I had an overnight flight to Barcelona and slept maybe 5-6 hours total and got to Barcelona by 8:30 am. We reached the hotel at 10 am, checked in and made plans to go for a 1 hr run around the city. Well, our fearless Spanish leader and general manager of our plant stretched the truth and we ended up running for 1 hour and 50 minutes- 9.4 miles! It was invigorating but hard. I haven't done a longish run in a while. We ran alongside the beach (there was a walking/ biking path) and then through the city and back to the beach and our hotel.
I was well-fed on the flight though, I had a chicken salad for lunch and beef tenderloin for dinner, then an omelette for breakfast. I also had Ben and Jerry's chocolate fudge ice cream for dessert. I also had 1 liter of water before the run which helped !
