A marathon runner since 2004, I prefer to train in a group. I am a native Parisian but have lived in Chicago for almost 10 years. I have been back in my home town since 2005 and am starting to know some nice running routes!
On weeknights I like running across the Jardin des Plantes (good for intervals!) then around both islands, which is about 8K. On weekends I go along the Seine on the quais, then later in the season (for very long runs) along the Canal de l'Ourcq.
Racing about 7:20/mi, training about 8:30-9:00/mi.
I just ran the Liverpool 1/2 marathon, have several triathlons lined up this summer, and possibly a marathon this fall. I'm hoping to complete an Ironman in the next 3 years.
Near the Jardin des Plantes. Most convenient for me is anywhere along the Seine between Austerlitz and Concorde, but I can stretch that area.
I am a native Parisian.

Sounds interesting! Axel, have you got a monkey here in Paris? Or was that taken in India? If in India, I can show you a good one! If in Paris, I'd like to meet your monkey!
Let me fill in for Axel here (what an honor!) on the race questions.
The race will be over by 6pm, how long it takes you depends on your wit and cunning ;)
hi axel! the race sounds fun. when do you think it will finish?
ZOOM team will take the title at the next hunt...our path to world domination will be unstoppable!
I wont be there for this one but hope you do this again, sounds like a blast.
Axel Rocks. And he cooks well. And he has family guy on DVD. Is there a cooler person? ;)
