When we think of winter sun in Spain our thoughts are that of warm sun on our face & tee shirts, well not quite. The temperature at 10am some mornings struggled to get beyond 3 degrees.
I'd packed my winter woolies and was off to run and explore up close the banks of the Ebro river in Zaragoza in the province of Aragon - famous for it's huge Cathedral and huge cat fish!
I spent the first few runs finding my bearings navigating around the of Expo 2009 marvelling at all the new bridges and infrastructure which really showed the flair of Spanish design.
Given I had no sat nav and my legs were holding up well I continued around a circular course following the river. It was only until I returned and plotted my route that I realised I had run 14.4 miles, the sunshine and the architecture it seems had distracted me.
Great nutrition after a long run but the flavour was exceptional, worth the exercise as the food just tastes even better!
