John - Paris Marathon


The Paris marathon was a spectacular event on a scale I’d not seen in a running event before! The streets were filled with cheering onlookers with a festival atmosphere and so many amazing sites to take in along the way. I'd do it again in a heartbeat and I'm super grateful to all who supported me and Shout.
