Let's Review

As Mike points out so well in the episode, the Paris Marathon attracts a lot of runners, but it is a great choice for first-time marathon runners because the scenery is so beautiful, the ambiance is great, and it is appropriate for both competitive and "laid-back" marathon runners. Mike also says some really nice things both about the show and Paris in general, so it was a pleasure talking to him!
