Running in Madrid

Madrid is a fun place to visit! We stayed at the Westin Place Hotel (great hotel and great location) that is very near parks, shopping and many attractions.

For our first dinner, we chose the famous Restarante Botin – which was founded in 1725 and is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest restaurant still serving to this today. It is small, crowded and opens up very late…but great local food and a fun way to start our visit. The local suckling pig is the most popular dish along with the garlic soup.

Of course, we started out our trip with a run around Retiro park!

Surprisingly, being ~ 50 degrees Fahrenheit, most of the locals preferred to run with long pants, hats and gloves.

It was a great set of trails and scenery to enjoy a morning run and introduction into the culture of Madrid.

Running around the world is always fun.  Some of my other favorite spots:
