During my recent athlete photo shoot in Paris there was the annual Paris Marathon. All the more reason to get up early in the morning and find a great spot in the middle of the action at Champs-Elysées.
Interesting enough there was virtually no control, no security and only very few police officers to secure the event. So no one kept me from standing in the middle of the street while 50.000 people started running towards me. At some point it got too dangerous and I had to slip to the side of the road. Here are a few impressions.
