Paris Marathon 2015

susiebe1 - hiya. 

Paris is mainly flat. There are four tunnels that you run through and the exits are the only steepish bits that you will encounter and they're not that bad. 

There are a couple of sections overs cobbles but don't mistake these cobbles for proper cobbles. Just to give you an idea, the start of the run is along the Champs Élysées which is a very busy road for traffic - it is cobbled. If you didn't know, you wouldn't really notice.

RD2 - I ran Berlin last year with some others off this thread. It was a good marathon with some great support and interesting sights but it also takes you through some areas that weren't that attractive. 

However, you can't beat running through the Brandenberg gate. 

If you get the chance, watch some of the inline skating marathon on Saturday, it's quite a spectacle.

HRM chafing - two different Garmin straps and a Polar strap, same problem. That's a triple ooch. 

I even tried body glide (+1 for body glide) on the edge of the straps and even that didn't work

There's no sharing, I tell ya, she's mine. All mine. 

And I am very proud to be that fruitcake.

Weedy - love PC's cake. What flavour was it, Apple?

PC - happy wotsit matey. 

Ive never had a problem with a made up stamp in Paris but I would recommend visiting your Doctor for a quick once over, just to be safe.

KS - I use Body Glide on my nips and dangly bits. Very good stuff. It's like a stick of deodorant and I always know when I've forgotten to use it or miss a bit. 

Also, it doesn't mark.

Britrisky - hi 

I think Jimbob took the Eurostar home on the Sunday night, the year before last. I don't think he had a problem. 

Tinkerbel is the mistress of the accommodation list - I'm sure she'll be along shortly. 

Will it sell out before London is announced? I doubt it. There are loads on here who have waited for their London rejections before entering. Previously, there have been places available in November.

RS - which hotel had you selected? Eyeing up the locations for next year. 

Hi Larri. How annoying getting your clothes stolen
