COMPETITION: la course du soleil (Nice-Monaco) 21K

Escape the 4 cold, rainy months of sunlight deprivation otherwise known as the Paris winter and come run in the sun in early Feb (a month before the Paris half)! This point-to-point along la côte d'azure sounds fun and should be a small race (limited to 1,300 participants-- unlike the sure to be crowded Paris half and full later in the spring!)

    That was the best run ever!!!! So awesome!

    Also, if anyone wants to sell their bib etc. for the Paris half-marathon, let me know. I really want to do it!

    Glad you enjoyed it, and congrats to everyone! That was the most beautiful race I've ever done, in love with that coast line! Will keep an eye out for other races down there-- there's also the marathon des Alpes-Maritimes in November where you run along the coast in the other direction (Nice to Cannes...) :)

    Hey! Well done all you crazy exceptional people with great taste in half marathons! The race was amazing! And kudos to Blythe for spotting it! On to the next one now I guess? :)

      Ah, you meant next Sat, just before the race? Somehow I thought you were talking about this one...

    Great idea! For anyone interested, how about carbo loading (otherwise known as having dinner!) together Sat night? Thanks, Kristin, my number's[masked]

      Great idea! My number is[masked] - but perhaps let's just add a new, pre-soleil event for this?

    I'd like to coordinate something together! If anyone wants to contact me, my number is[masked] 63. This is going to be a blast.

    I'm taking a long weekend, too-- early train from Paris that Fri am and back on Sunday night (I'll have to look up the times and post them later). Rented an apartment for the weekend with some other course du soleil-ers through the website AirBnB-- definitely recommend them. Apartment was very reasonable!

    I just signed up! I'm really excited, since I've never been to this part of France before and I've heard wonderful things. I love using running as an excuse to see cool places ;) I would be interested to know how you're all getting there and where you're staying, maybe some people want to coordinate something together?

      We're going for the "whole" weekend, taking INTERCITES DE NUIT 21h23 to Nice on Friday and IDTGV 17h34 back on Sunday. No hotel booked yet, though I think I'll look for something over the coming weekend...

    P.S. Be sure to do some hill training for this one!

      Stay tuned for some hill training sessions in Jan-- or earlier if we can figure out how to squeeze 'em in before the holidays!

      Oh damn. Thanks for the link Blythe! This looks like some serious "fun" coming our way...

    @Kristin, I agree! :)
