i'm taking this moment to interrupt my slow-going packing endeavor to bring you the paris forecast for the four days leading up to the marathon.
as you can see below, we're looking at partly cloudy skies with only a 20% chance of rain. highs in the 50's and lows in the 30's could make for some fine running weather.
i'd say things are looking up for those marathon runners, wouldn't you?
over to you bob.
