Running Advent Calendar – Day 7 – Paris, France

7 Dec

Welcome to Day 7 of my Running Advent Calendar (day by day, I explore a running route from somewhere in the world). Today I will look at running in Paris, France.

In exactly 4 months, I hope to be arriving in Paris, France on a short stopover following a business trip to Russia. I have never been to Paris but it has always been very high on my list of places to go.

The running route that I hope to run if I get the chance to  travel to Paris will be one that takes in a lot of the major sites and travels through the heart of Paris.

A run along the Seine River, down Champs-Elysees and up to the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower would be the perfect way to cover a lot of ground on a short trip to Paris. Let’s hope I get to be touching down in this great city in 4 months from now and running this beautiful route!

Stay tuned for Day 8 of the Running Advent Calendar tomorrow and check out Days 1 – 6 of my Running Advent Calendar here in case you missed them:

    I love Paris! I know some people who have mixed feelings about, but I have been there twice and fell in love with it hard on my second visit. Definitely get in a run so you can enjoy all the amazing cheese, chocolate, and bread while you are there!

      I already love Paris and haven’t even been! The cheese, chocolate and bread make it all the more appealing too!

    That’s awesome you’ll be going there soon. Beautiful! I’d love to go to Paris some day, both to visit and run there. In fact, when I see any literature on vacation spots or destination cities, that’s one of my first thoughts: “I’d love to run there.” 🙂

      I have the exact same thoughts! I look up races as soon as I find out I’m traveling somewhere too!
