This morning was glorious in Paris, I have my standard running gear and a small map and off I went.
Today’s run hook me on a long trip to 26 metro stations. I decided to run a bit slower since this is almost my 3rd 1/2 marathon in 6 days. It’s about longevity, not about how fast I could go.
Including the last 2 runs on the 6th and 4th, that leaves me with 303 stations to go.
I need to come up with a better system to track which station I’ve already visited, I ended up repeating 2 stations I visited before. This needs some computer science :-)
Today I figured out how many stations there are in Paris using The Paris Metro system
The system boasts 211 km (131 miles) of track and 14 lines, shuttling 3500 cars on a precise schedule between 380 stations (not including RER stations), 87 of these offering connections between lines. It is said that every building in Paris is within 500 meters (3/10 mile) of a métro station. Roughly 6 million people per day patronize the métro, which employs over 15,000.
