    Thanks Paul - I knew this next chapter of the saga was coming, but certain events are happening sooner than anticipated. At least now I know what to do, I've through this several times already since 2010...

    Hi Christian,
    what a pity, but family is more important, good luck for you!
    Does anyone have an answer for me regarding fixing the chip?

    Robin, the simple solution is velcro band around the ankle, works perfectly, weights hardly nothing. Just thread the chip into the band... I've done all my races like that, for years!

    LOL - very fancy, Robin ;-) That would do perfectly...

    The one I use is very rough, usually involves blood (ouch). ;-)

    PS - I really hope we can catch up some other time, we have much in common!

    Hi Christian,
    if you like, you can visit me or perhaps we find a 10km competition or half marathon which we can run together. You may contact me by email: robin@fundinger.de

    Bruno, this is great. Have you run the whole marathon barefoot?

    I decided at the start to keep my huaraches (Xero Shoes) on. The surface was too rough for me. And because of these overcrowded, sometimes narrow roads, where you can't see all in front of you and changing the side of the road was difficult.
    But I finished in good state of mind and it was a really great experience.
    And: I love Paris. :)
    Everything was organised perfectly, all helpers and runners were very friendly, weather was beautiful, and: I really love Paris...

    Now I understand, what Christian meant with "lepreux".

    Thank you all here for your support and thank you all supporters here in Paris! I will never forget this event.
