This year we had the most amazing Christmas Day run. Christmas morning Emily and I were 6 days in to an 11 day trip to France and we had recently gotten back to Paris having taken a trip to Bayeux.
That morning we woke up and had a cup of coffee in the room. We walked outside for our run and spent a few minutes re-acquiring satellites, since GPS watches don’t appreciate when you move around a lot and when you are surrounded by tall buildings. After walking about a half mile waiting for this acquisition, we were off on our run.
The first half mile lead us to the base of the Eiffel Tower, then we got to run under a basically abandoned monument, as no one in Paris wakes up until at least 10 AM. Once past the tower, we ran through a park adjacent and up to the Paris Military Academy. Since both of us were pretty tired and Emily was fighting a bit of foot pain, we cleaned up a 5K and decided stop.
It was a super fun run and a great add to our collection of Garmin Activities from “different places”.
