Paris Marathon Runner — MidWeek Blues — She Did It !!!
Karen, our daughter who is living and working in London, was a finisher in the Paris Marathon this April 15, 2012, Sunday. We are real proud of her! The first three pictures came from Karen's blog.
Of course her family came to cheer her on. Mrs. Jim and I did too! Pictures are below.
Saturday morning we took the Eurostar to cross the English Channel from London to Paris. Then a prearranged delivery van to the hotel near the Eiffel Tower. We left her home at five in the morning and were checked into the hotel about ten.
It took several hours for her to pick up her running packet as there was a humongous line. A small problem when she figured out that her passport and driver license were still at the hotel. But a picture credit card was sufficient so really there was not a problem.
The rest of the afternoon we strolled the streets of Paris. Also we ate, of course, at a sidewalk cafe. All told over the two days we stayed I believe that I WALKED twenty-six miles, the length of the Marathon run.
If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo picture on the right. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions . Just do what I did. Or do less. All she requires is a BLUE PICTURE, you don't have to write.
Congratulations on your daughter being a Paris Marathon Runner.
Have a terrific day. :)
Hope you are having a great time in my all time favorite city.
I did at least 5 of the 5k Revlon Run-Walk,
Going to Karen's blog.
HI jim ~~ Thanks from the cheers from London and the great pictures from Paris.
I am glad you enjoyed the stories and jokes.
I am doing fine and went to the podiatrist yesterday and he says my toenail is NOT ingrown, so I am relieved, but there must be something in there that needs to come. out.
You may have to see a professional with yours, as apparently they have to kill the root of the nail so it doesn't grow again.
Take great care my friend, Cheers, Merle.
sound like y'all are having fun!
oh and thanks Mr.Jim for leaving a comment on my blog. :)
Congrats to Karen, that is really something.
Love cute KP, too. What a lovely family you've got there.

Me? I don't even like to drive that far.
I like to play golf with the young ones. So long as they know how to putt.
