The 5km run
This was one of the most awesome events of all. We ran with a group of 50 people through the city, with coaches of the runners club that had boom boxes attached on their backs. The song “stolen dance-milky chance” will always remind me of this afternoon (the sun, the city, the run, the smiles and the fun. It was such an amazing feeling to be running with a group of wild, beastly enthusiastic runners that I felt we owned the city and we could do whatever we wanted.


IMG_9476At the half of the race, we stopped along the river and they organized a rally. And as you may know, Paris is a busy city, so there really wasn’t a possibility to run at a fast pace (too many cars, too many people). The run coaches divided us in 4 groups and challenged the teams to take a sprint to the other side competing with the opposite team. My body was still shaking from the adrenaline 5 minutes after that sprint. It felt so good releasing the energy that was generated because of all the enthusiasm. I personally feel much stronger doing something together and having fun at the same time. So empowering! We ran back and headed straight back to the hotel to prepare ourselves for the evening: a concert of Ellie Goulding!

    Just found your blog. It’s great. I’m looking to running this 10k in 2015. Do you recall how early they posted the sign up for this race was and could anyone sign up for it? I can’t find any info about it online.

    Thanks so much.

      Hi! 😀 Thank you for the compliment! I subscribed last minute by asking Nike. I was lucky they had a spot for me. You can always check their facebook or subscribe to the Nike Run Paris newsletter 🙂 Are you going to do other runs then this one? xx
