So it's official. I've signed up for the 20 Kilomètres de Paris, a 20km race in Paris where I'm meeting up with a bunch of the European forumites from the Runango Women's Forum.
I fly into Paris on Friday, October 13th, and I'm staying at the Mercure Tour Eiffel, right near the Eiffel Tower, and more importantly, the race start. I fly back to Munich the evening of the 15th, after the race.
The only problem is that I need to get a medical certificate saying that I can run the race! I've never had to do such a thing for any race in Canada, so this is a new experience for me. I also don't have a doctor in Munich yet, so I guess I'm going to have to find one! Guess what I'm doing tomorrow?
So now I have a race on my calendar. I have no real goals, since training was interrupted by our move to Munich, and I'm not fully acclimated to running at altitude here. Munich is fairly flat - it's on a plateau - but I've always lived at sea level before, and Munich is up about 568 meters (or 1669 ft.) Not terribly high up, but just enough to feel it running.
