friday night roller blade in paris



one of the coolest things to do while in paris is to roller blade through the city at night, from 10 p.m. to 1 p.m. i heard about this right before i left and said, "i must do this." i heard that this 3 hour trail through the city was very difficult, so i was only planning on going for an hour. but after one hour i felt invigorated and knew that i must finish the race, and so i did. it was intense, amazing and unforgettable.

above on the map you can see the route that we took. we went up and down hills and across cobble stone pavement at times. the downhill was the craziest for me. if you ever come to paris and are here on a friday, and you enjoy roller blading, you have to check this out. in the summer over 15,000 people start. there aren't as many that finish.

That trail must have been a blast. You'll have to show me how well you blade back in Los Angeles!

that looks like a lot of fun!

No blading in Morgantown--it is all steep hills (except for a rail trail).
