Betty P.




Organizer since:

November 22, 2012


What inspired you to become a runner?

My father used to run laps around a park in our neighborhood when I was a child, and one day he asked me to join him. We had a blast together, and I've been running ever since!

How long have you been running?

Since I was 13 years old, so quite a few years. :)

Have you previously run any Marathons or Half-Marathons? If so, which ones?

Yes! Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, DC; San Francisco Marathon; Marathon de Paris; Semi-Marathon de Paris; Semi-Marathon de la Croix Verte; Marathon des Alpes-Maritimes Nice-Cannes; and Nice-Cannes Marathon Relay (2 x 21.1km). I ran some of these races more than once.

Have you ever trained with a group?

Yes, I always train for marathons with a group.

What is your approximate pace per kilometer (or per mile)?

About 5:30 to 6:00 minutes per kilometer, depending on the distance


My name is Betty, and I am one of the founders of Let's Run Paris. I've been a runner for most of my life, and I'm always eager to share my passion for the sport with others. I hope to run with you soon!
