My first ever trip to Barcelona was incredible. I can't believe that I had not yet been to the colourful capital so when the idea of running the marathon came up, I jumped at the chance. When you travel to a city specifically for a race you know there is a guarantee that you'll get to see most of the sights in one go! It was an epically beautiful course through the contrasting architecture of the city and out to the coast, along the blowy beach. Here are snaps from some of the culture and cuisine we came across on our days off, including the recovery vegan feast at Flax and Kale.
