Running Through Paris

September 21, 2012

Now that I’m back on my feet, I’ve been going on runs through the streets of Paris, sometimes along the Seine, sometimes along St. Michel. I live just on the border of the 9th and 10th arrondissement and I’ve been running to the Ile-de-la-Cité, by the Notre Dame, which is approximately the 4th arrondissement. The cobblestone doesn’t have much give on my feet, but there are also parks like Jardin du Luxembourg that I might start running to so that it’s easier on my joints and limbs (lots of food to support…).

Here’s something along the lines of what my run is like:

Which is why running isn’t too bad here. Regardless, I’ve been treating myself to lunch after every run because there also just happens to be a street full of the best kebab places, chocolatiers, and bakeries. Just coincidental that I end my run there.

Lunch after run today: Pita Grec (there’s lettuce, tomato, and yogurt sauce SO SHUT UP IT’S HEALTHY)
