Yup I had to pee, my laces came loose, and I had difficulty surpassing others that were in my way to run at my pace. I ignored that I had to pee, tied my laces and looked for practical and safe ways to run. After 7km I had a hard time to keep the pace I started at in the beginning, I had raised the bar very high and i started to notice it physically. The only thing I thought was: keep on going, do not stop! 

IMG_9505I saw the finish and I was really almost at my limits. I was so happy with the time and when I heard my friend cheering I instantly started crying after reaching the finish. It was a bit funny because I wasn’t sad at all. I actually was very proud, that I overcame my own fears by pushing myself. It feels liberating to know you can always go further than you think!



IMG_9509When I got home I was so tired, fulfilled and grateful for all the experiences I have had in such a short time. So many beautiful people with great passions in such a great city. I could not have imagined that my first experience as a “Fit girl in Paris” would be so    amazing. One of the best events I have had ever. And about my PB? I did the course in 45 min and 36 sec , which I never had could imagine to start with. Let’s see how far I can get from now on 😀

    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
