Ready, Steady… Go!

You guessed it! My Paris Marathon is this Sunday! I’m very excited as it is the first marathon where I have NO expectations. Don’t get me wrong, I had massive expectations… Until the injury!

Now, I’m ready for a weekend in Paris that just so happens to include a marathon through a beautiful city… That also happens to have fabulous food! 🙂

Here is a picture of me before my half marathon a couple of weeks ago.

One with my cheerleader!

She loved the medal and still likes to wear it around the house!

That one didn’t go so well… About mile 7, my ‘bum’ muscle started to really bother me. However, I was running for children with cancer and I was NOT going to let them down!

My suitcase is almost packed, but I don’t think my family has even started to pack! They do know the car arrives at 5:10am… Right?!

That’s okay, Lauren is ready to go! She has been talking non-stop about riding the Eurostar. That is my girl – she loves to go!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and stay tuned for updates! Let’s hope this goes okay! 🙂

  1. I am in the same boat, I have the Austin 10/20 Sunday and am just there to run with friends. I don’t care about race time. I just want to have a great time with friends!
    Of course Austin is no Paris!

    Good luck!!!
