April 11th: Paris Marathon 2010
Experience: Fabulous! It was my first marathon. For your first one I recommend you pick a great location where you will always remember. I ran with my girlfriend for her 50th birthday and took pictures all along the way. I had the time of my life! It was a long weekend in Paris in the spring, who wouldn’t love that?
Training: I didn’t run more than 16 miles, given that I had IM Lake Placid 3 months from this race.
Course Notes: Great way to site see the city. Running on cobblestone is not easy. April can be a bit chilly in Paris. There course is fairly flat, but does have a series of rollers that take you in and out of the underpasses along le Seine. Starts right at l’ Arc de Triomphe.
