|Nicole and Dan with Paris Running Tour - Palais Royal - Photo Frédéric Poirier|
On holidays in Paris, Nicole prepares her next races: the Chicago marathon and, three weeks later, the New York marathon.
Running so close marathons? Yes, with a non-exhausting good training, it is possible.
So what is better than a Paris Running Tour to combine regular training and discovery-visit of Paris?
|Nicole and Dan - Avenue of New York in Paris|
Little break avenue de New York. New York, one of Nicole's objectives.
Is there also an avenue of Paris in New York? No, but there is an avenue of Paris in Chicago, Paris Avenue.
Let us run in the paths of the garden of the Trocadéro:

then along the river Seine:
|Dan and Nicole - Left Bank, "quai Branly" (Branly pier)|
The perspectives are often very beautiful in Paris, it deserves some stops:
|Dan and Nicole - "Champs Elysées" (Paris Marathon start!)|
|Nicole and Dan - The "Palais Royal"|

Merci Dan and Nicole !
Since then, Nicole realized a time of 3:31 in Chicago then, only three weeks later, 3:40 in New York. Fantastic!
