We did it! Almost exactly an hour apart as expected, my brother, my sister and I each crossed the finish line of the Paris Marathon on what was a beautifully warm day in the city!
It started off cool but the sun was out in force which made the city look amazing but the runners a little worse for wear.
They had oranges and bananas all along the route which were amazing; None of this excessive amount of lucozade you see in the UK.
The woods in the east of the city are stunning, I must pop back there at some point in time and the views along the Seine were fantastic.
I felt really good at the end but I did come through with a tiny knee injury which held me back on time and is feeling a little sore. The good thing is that as soon as I noticed it I eased off. I’d rather a slower time and knee that works!
Feeling good that I took about 20 minutes off last year’s time and sure that had conditions been cooler I could have come in closer to 5:15. My official time was 5:41.
Awesome day with the family! Thank you Paris!
