Paris Marathon: Mile 23

March 30, 2010
Mile 23 of the Paris Marathon 2010

Not quite the home strait, but the course makes a decisive turn towards the finish line

You might get a sense of deja vu at this point, but you’ve not been here before. Unfortunately, Parisian parks have a distinctly similar look when you’re running along roads. On the positive side, looking to either side of you as you run, you should get a feeling of speed – even if you don’t feel like you’re running that fast.

Seen this before? You haven't, but it looks familiar

It’s a smooth, straight road, and crowding on the course should have been much reduced. Focus on running strong. In fact, try focusing on the gap between you and the runner immediately in front of you. Try to reduce that gap. If you overtake the runner, focus on the next one. Overtaking will give you a mental boost and help  you feel stronger – but don’t overdo it!
