i wouldn't think that you've hurt the engine, unless there are any obvious signs. But i certainly wouldn't make a habit of running it that hot, and i would investigate why it ran that hot.
to be sure, give it a leak down test, compression test, valve spring pressure test, check timing and check valve clearances.
don't forget to check water and oil!!!

Check the plugs for sparkly metal flakes on the tips, if there is you've burnt some pistons.
