Bandit in Paris

50,000 Paris Marathon runners plus one bandit, me. To run a race without paying the entrance fee is to be a bandit. Racing or simply running a marathon on the eve of 1,000 walk would be to invite trouble; so, I ran the first 25km for the joy of experiencing Paris as centuries of heroes may have experience the Champs-Élysées with cheering crowds and the unique splendor only Paris can claim.

  1. I am so envious, Linda. I wanted to run bandit when Jay, Colin, and I were there in 2009, but I decided against it. Some day, I’ll run the whole thing legit.

  2. Running as a bandit is not so bad as long as you take identification and don’t cross the finish line. Your trip is so inspiring! mjb
