I can’t tell you how saddened I am about what has happened in Paris.

Paris is my absolute favorite city in the world.  I was a French teacher for over 20 years and had the opportunity to visit the city often.  I haven’t been there in years but I have so many fond memories of my dozen or so trips there.

My dream has been and still is to someday run a race there.

Blogger/Runner Karen at French Inspiration reports that she and her loved ones are safe.

My heart goes out to all those who have uselessly lost their lives or loved ones.
