2008 Paris Marathon
The Paris Marathon came by the Bastille twice today and finished up on Avenue Foch.
We were at the Bastille with our French teacher, Valerie and her children to cheer on her husband, Olivier. After Oliver ran past us on rue Henry IV, we came back to the boat to relax and have a cup of coffee, and then we took the métro over to the finish line, all the while Olivier was running.
Valerie's daughters had fun cheering on the crowd, and handing out bananas to the runners as they passed the food stand.
