No unnecessary risks in 7 days of the marathon (April 7th, 2013 ), we ran quietly and took advantage of a route around the Latin Quarter, on the "Ile de la Cité" and also right bank: Louvre, Palais Royal, Pompidou Center, the "Marais".
Early on Sunday morning, very few people on the route, see how the Louvre is quiet :

The winter does not want to go and it is by the temperature of -2°C (28.4°F) that we ran . March 31st!
Well, this cold gave a beautiful particular luminosity to the city, we admired Notre-Dame nicely "colored" :

Manoella, we wish you a magnificent first marathon in Paris!
Merci Manoella !
