The 2013 Paris Marathon

April 8th, 2013

The 2013 Paris marathon – was yesterday.  What’s interesting to me was not who won but that French women are running in ever greater numbers!  Jogging came late to France – in the 70s running in Paris (not to mention outside of Paris) brought stares as if I were an alien.  But in the run-up to this year’s marathon there was even a report on the TV news about French women and why they’ve become runners!  As they say, you’ve come a long way baby…

That aside, the Paris marathon does have one of the most picturesque routes imaginable.  Tempted?
