Paris In Photos

Paris Sunset

Last year around this time  I was in Paris, biting into a warm crusty baguette from Eric Kayser and downing a glass of champagne. I would say sipping, but that would be an understatement considering my jet lag. Champagne is good for jet lag, right? 

I was preparing to run the half-marathon through the centuries old cobblestone streets of Paris. I imagined spectators lining the streets cheering us on, runners given paper cups filled with Bordeaux to hydrate and delicious miniature chocolate eclairs for energy. Unfortunately for me, a few days prior to the race I injured my knee, leaving me unable to run. Thankfully I had the sights, sounds and tastes of Paris to cheer my sour mood up.

Who knows, maybe next year I'll give the half-marathon another try...
