The ideal combination for a trip is mixing a running race with my favourite city, Paris. During another March break, I flew into Paris, boarded a train to Rambouillet, walked to my hotel (I couldn’t find a bus or taxi) and settled into my hotel and went to get my race kit as the race was the next day. Yes, I would be running a half marathon (21.1 km) in a new time zone so that at 9:30 am, it was really 3:30 am my time. While it was cold and cloudy, the race passed by some nice scenery, including Chateau de Rambouillet.

Back in Paris I went to a special Yves Saint Laurent retrospective at the Petit Palace. Many of his famous gowns and outfits were on display.
