I can’t wait to log some miles in these beautiful cities. I did my 12 mile run this morning so that I won’t have to worry about running tomorrow when we arrive and I will no doubt be jet-lagged. Then on Tuesday, I will head out for my first run in Paris.
Paris is my favorite city in the world. I studied abroad there in college and have been there 3 other times for vacation. However, during the times I have been there, I haven’t been in a running phase of my life. I mentioned in my first ever post that while I love to run, I haven’t always been the most dedicated runner. I’m trying to change that now. So during my previous trips to Paris, I was a non-runner. This time, I will be running a lot. I already mapped out a possible route for my 14 mile run this week and I’m so excited for it. Luckily, I know the city pretty well so I won’t have a hard time getting around.
I have been to Rome once – while I was studying abroad in Paris, I visited my dear friend who was studying in Rome. I loved the city and I’m excited to have the opportunity to visit again. I will be hardcore carbo-loading while there with lots of amazing pizza and pasta. Can’t wait! We’re meeting my family in Rome and I know we’re going to have so much fun together. I don’t know the city as well so figuring out my runs will be a little tricky, but since we’ll have family around, someone will be able to watch Z while hubby and I run together. Hopefully, between the 2 of us, we can figure out where we’re going :).
We won’t be taking the jogging stroller so Z won’t get to experience any foreign runs, but I can’t wait to introduce him to these two cities I love so much. I’m sure he’s going to have a great time and I think he’s going to love all the yummy food we’ll be eating!
Be back next week with a running vacation recap! Au revoir and ciao!
