Running the Paris Marathon

Forget hop-on-hop-off bus tours. What’s the best way to see a city? To run it, of course!

After a year of planning and months of training, I ran my first marathon in Paris on April 8th 2018. It was an exhilarating adventure, culminating in the best race I could have ever have wished for.

Here is my race recap of the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris; something I wanted to do to ‘tick off the bucket list’, but has in fact ignited a passion for endurance running.

January {Loves}

Unlike the majority of the population, I usually look forward to January. If a month could be introverted, it would be January, wouldn't it? A month of quiet reflection and fresh starts.

It usually indicates a trip to Germany in the Sharples household. This year was no exception, and we duly headed off to Berlin a couple of weeks into January for my annual pilgrimage to the motherland.

But, I can't help but feel... well, a bit flat, to be honest with you. 

November {Loves}

I'd thought November would be a quiet month, really.

We were embarking on Project New Kitchen and with the C-word just around the corner, we'd expected it to just be a stepping stone into the festive period. Just a quiet month at home, with nothing much to report on. But when I flicked back through my diary and looked at the photographs I'd taken, I realised that we had done far more than I'd remembered!
