See below comment from one of our participants:

Hi Judy & Fran,  thanks for everything! We loved Paris, the marathon, the hotel (rooms were fantastic – very clean, nice to be close to start/finish; to have views over Paris, to have a bath in the room for after the race, a supermarket in the shops below; could not have been any better) Paris is such a wonderful city.  We want to go back!  Jane.
