Jogging in Paris, strange?

by ms.heidimay

I will be spending a few woks in Paris and want to stay on my cardiovascular routine (not just walking bit jogging). Willi look strange to jog through the streets of Paris? I know there are parks for this as well but i am not sure I will be taking the time to go to one eve morning. I just don't want to look like a complete freak :-)!

To Parisians, all foreigners are freaks, and by definition insane. I wouldn't worry about it.

I don't suppose anyone will take a blind bit of notice of you. There are people who jog in Paris just as everywhere else in Europe. And not always in parks either.

And if they do notice you, I doubt you'd notice that they'd noticed.....so why worry? :-)

I saw a lot of people jogging on Champs de Mars, so I guess it's not really a strange thing.

Hell no, it's funny I just read this because I just went to Paris last weekend and one of the things I noticed was that everybody in that town was jogging.

Do your thing girl and do not worry about what other people think, thus it might catch on to others. I was jogging in the 70's before it was even thought of in Paris. (I was still in high school) and strange enough, I run into someone I knew in the same school doing the same thing. How strange sometimes we look at things. Cheers Tommy x

No. People jog in Paris...

Re: Jogging in Paris, strange?

by Windsailor

You can see joggers all around Paris, not only in parks. It can get a bit crowded at certain hours in central Paris for confortable jogging, but do not worry, you won´t be the only one jogging.

Love it. Thanks all for your opinions and observations :-)

Re: Jogging in Paris, strange?

by Jason21B

Your welcome, please hit me up if you decide to jog through Bavaria, Germany. I run allot if you need somebody to race :)

As a side note, you should read Adam Gopnik's book 'Paris to the Moon', if you haven't already. There's a *very* funny chapter about his efforts to find a gym in Paris and French attitudes toward exercise.

I try and run in most cities in Europe and it is not big deal. jardins Luxembourg are nice, also the viaduct that starts around Bastille is kind of neat to run on. Also the stairs going up to Sacre Coeur are a great workout. Karl

Ha ha ha okay thanks :-)

Re: Jogging in Paris, strange?

by ms.heidimay

Thanks! I will download it tonight to read, great! I love books I can read to understand more the culture there :-)

Re: Jogging in Paris, strange?

by ms.heidimay

Oh great idea, the stairs at Sacre Cuere, that is my favorite area so far that I have visited. Perfect.

Re: Jogging in Paris, strange?

Be sure to take the Metro to the Abbesses Metro Station. There are over 350 stairs to the top. Neat murals on the walls as you go up the stairs!

Have fun.

Parisians do jog. In fact there is a marathon here every every April and it has been going on since 1976. The first one was in 1896 or there abouts (thanks to Wikpedia for the info.) So I don't think you will look like a freak if you want to jog on the street. I see it all the time in my neighborhood. And if you are into roller blading at all you might want to participate in the rollers and coquillage on Sunday afternoon. http://www.rollers-coquillages.org/ or the roller randonée on Friday night. http://www.pari-roller.com/ Both are a sight to see.

Travel Tips for Paris

Buy a map!

by Rojo72

The first thing you NEED to do in Paris is to get a map of all the streets and metro and stuff. You could go for a free map, but I chose to buy one in a small bookstore near my hostel. It was 7 euros, but well worth it. My map was a BOOK, not a folding map, organized first by the 20 Arrondissements and then a lot of suburbs and places like Bois de Boulogne after that. It also included a bus, RER and metromap.

I'd say: buy an book of maps instead of a foldning map any day of the week. You can have it in your bag and it's MUCH easier to pick up and look at without taking up the whole of the pavement...

Saving money ? Maybe - Cutting lines ? Sure !

by mariev

The Paris museum pass covers 60 museums and monuments and allows an unlimited number of visits.

It exists in 3 versions : 2 days, 4 days and 6 days (consecutive calendar days)
You can buy it in advance (the valdidity starts when you enter the 1st museum)
It costs 30 € for 2 days, 45 € for 4 days, 60 € for 6 days (to compare : one single museum ticket costs 8 or 9 €)

Even, if you are a moderate museum fan, the pass has the interesting charateristic to allow you to skip the tickets lines (and, for some museums like the Louvre , to use separate entry gates) . This make a huge difference in high season when the queues are important.
Nota : the pass doesn't allow to skip the security check (the only place where it makes a difference is the Sainte Chapelle)

http://www.parismuseumpass.fr/flash/hp_fr.html Most parisian museums are freee under 18 years old, but if the parents have a pass, the acompanying children can use the same line (and skip the tickets line too).

The pass even allows you just to enter a museum to use the (generally very clean) toilets (even if you don't visit it)).

You can buy your pass in the museums (chose a small one with next to no queue to do this, like the Conciergerie or the Cluny) but also in the Paris tourist office (25 rue des Pyramides), in the shopping mall under the Louvre (Caroussel du Louvre) or in one of the FNAC shops (www.fnac.com).

La Tour Eiffel

by barryg23

Everyone has heard of or seen the Eiffel Tower so there's not (too) much I can add. The queues here always seem very long so it's often a good idea to arrive early. I usually climb the tower to the second level rather than take the lift, and then take the lift to the top. In that way, you avoid the queues, get some exercise and save 18 francs. On the climb, there are also many interesting signs, at the top of each flight of stairs, detailing the history of the tower.

The tower can be seen from many parts of the city. One of the best views is from the metro. If you take line 6 towards Etoile, once the train leaves Bir-Hakeim, the tower suddenly and spectacularly pops in to view. There are also great views from Trocadero and from the summit of l'Arc de Triomphe.

Street artists

by Helga67

Paris is a city of artists. Wherever you go, along the Seine, in the metro, on the famous hill of Montmartre, you will encounter them. Some make beautiful music, others will make a painting of you.

The most famous place to find artists is still Montmartre.

Sneakers - a Walker's Friend

by BeatChick

People are always asking "What are they wearing in Paris?", I suppose this is because they want to fit in. So in response to that I took some "fashion photos" of things that were prevalent in the city. Last trip, I noticed a plethora of what we call "Chucks" or "Chuck Taylors" here in America(for the Chuck Taylor logo on the side), those classic basketball shoes made by Converse, those shoes favored by the punks when they can't afford expensive boots or shoes by Doc Marten.

I was gratified to see them again in this city along with some brightly colored, very european sneakers. The first 3 photos were taken in the Place de la Bastille, the 4th photo was taken in the Marais. The 5th photo of the 66euro Chucks & 100euro gold Nikes was snapped at Ici Courir on the rue de Rivoli in the Marais, also.
