SDP on tour...le jogging

One of my favourite movies recently is Potiche (Trophy Wife), a comedy starring Cahterine Deneuve as a 1960s "trophy wife" of an umbrella manufacturer (dhades of one of my other favourite movies, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg??)

In the opening sequence, Deneuve is jogging through the woods near her home. She manages to look ineffably French while doing this - a sort of straight-backed, swan-necked, languid gait!

I have read that Deneuve lives near the Luxembourg Gardens, and I think she has made a close study of the Ladies Who Jog in those gardens (below) .

There's a fair bit of jogging goes on in the Luxembourg, even the "hot and sweaty" kind. However, unlike Sydney (London? New York?) you will never be in danger of being mowed down on the pavements of Paris!
