The Shakeout Podcast: A Tour de France by Foot

The Paris Marathon is a lesson in history.

The experience of running a marathon is full of lessons learned. From the training leading up to the race to the race itself, runners must face tests of physical endurance and mental strength. 

What makes the Paris Marathon stand out from all other marathons in the world is that it not only teaches these lessons of learning how to run hard and fast but it also teaches something more than running: history.

Paris is a city that is steeped in history and at almost every kilometer mark of the marathon is another historical landmark or building. 

On this week’s episode of The Shakeout, we take you through the Paris Marathon in the fastest lesson in history. 

We would like to thank the Ontario Media Development Corporation for their contributions to this podcast.
