Each year, on a Sunday in April, the streets of Paris are filled with
35,000 marathon runners!...and this year,
1 very bodacious black bra!
The Paris Marathon begins on the Champs Elysees, then runs down the Boulevard to Place du Concorde, past the Louvre and out to the east of the city...then it joins the banks of the River Seine and returns past Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower on the way to the finish at the Arc de Triomphe on Avenue Foch!
That's a total of 26 miles, 385 yards!...& quite a stretch for this ol' bra! How did I do it? Check it out:
First, the night before running those 26 miles, 385 yards,
my Marathon Mistresses made sure my cups were fully carbo-loaded
with mounds of delicious spaghetti!
And since I'd be running 26 miles, 385 yards,
I also enjoyed several delicious croissants for breakfast ~ 100% guilt-free!!
Then I listened to my favorite inspirational music and got all pumped up about running 26 miles, 385 yards!
Finally...my Marathon Mistresses strapped me on...and
we joined the throng at the starting line: "The journey of 26 miles, 385 yards begins with a single step."Here we are at the 5 Mile Mark! Only 21 miles, 385 yards to go!
At the 10 Mile Mark, I convinced my Mistress to pull over for a quickie photo op in front of my favorite store! (Only 16 more miles, 385 yards to go....)
The Finish Line!
Woo-Hoo!!! We did it! All 26 miles and 385 yards!!!
THANK YOU to my incredible Marathon Mistresses, Kelly and Courtney,
for sharing this awesome, once in a lifetime (for me) experience!
Now please....take me home!!!
