I've been checking out Paris this weekend and confirm a) it's still here and b) still runnable. Had a lovely run first thing on Sunday morning - so nice to run along the river with fresh legs rather than sore and tired ones. Then 16k starting at the Eiffel Tower and finishing at the Palace of Versailles.
Good stuff from all the racers this weekend, and the last-long-runners aiming for other autumn races. Hang on in there, people!
Congrats on the Boston entry McHilly - all those nice downhills will be good practice for the Down run .
Lowrez - another Hoka fan here. But be careful which ones you choose. I used Bondi 3's for Comrades this year and last, and I'm sure they saved my legs from the worst excesses. But I had an unsatisfactory interlude with the Cliftons - although they felt comfortable it turns out there wasn't enough support for me, causing my knee to collapse inwards and straining the muscles on the inside of the leg, which took me a while to sort out. So if you need support, maybe not the one to try.
