Bucket List #4: La Parisienne

Updated: Oct 29, 2018

Paris, France


Europe’s largest women only race is held in aid of breast cancer. Participants run 6.7km around the capital. Women of all ages, and abilities run and walk together. You can expect great costumes, smiling faces and tears. Survivors, female family members of all ages, and friends join together. Their voice is heard internationally. Get out there and show your support. 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer. WE NEED A CURE!!


Running for the CURE, 40 thousand women strong

My love for running was fueled by my relatively new running group of friends. Unexpectedly, I was lucky enough to become part of a small group of runners that pretty much took me under their wings. I've learned a lot about myself, since I've been running with them. But, mostly I've learn more about the interactions and relationships one can have with other adults sharing a common interest. We all come from different places. We are truly diverse in age, ethnicity, economic status, education and marital status. But, we are bound together with mutual respect, love, human kindness, acceptance, and unconditional friendships.

Recently, and most unfortunately one the ladies in our group was diagnosed with cancer. She is on the road to recovery and doing well. Since, her diagnosis, we have run several races for the cure.

La Parisienne race for the CURE realized a bucket list item... run a race in Paris and run the biggest international race for the CURE.

Mission accomplished! No, this wasn’t my longest distance race and I didn’t podium. But, it was my proudest moment and most meaningful medal earned. The feeling of running with the pack (40,000) is indescribable!

There are no excuses to not fulfill your dream. Just get out there and make an effort. Trust me. The self gratification you'll get from just trying is the fuel you need to take one more step.


Make the most of Paris, while you're there.
