I love Paris in the springtime...

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Well, there wasn't much hype for it, but I ran the Paris marathon in early April.
I did my best time yet, at 5:08, very close to my goal of breaking 5 hours.
the day was beautiful and the run was amazing. I met a couple people from the US right before starting and ran with them most of the way. I dropped off a bit at the end, but they finished about 15 minutes before I did.

So now I am a 5 time, and international, marathon runner emoticon

Next up is the Amica marathon in Newport RI. I will start training in early May (in a couple weeks! eek)

The trip was great even with the 4 day delay in returing home because of the Iceland volcano eruption.

    Congratulations on your marathon! Very nice - 5 time international marathon runner! I'm terribly impressed. I just ran my first 10 K in 24 years here in Oslo. I haven't received my participation medal yet...held up in some other country by Icelandic Volcanic Ash! Glad you go home OK and good luck in Newport!
