It's tough staying calm about the Reggae Marathon. I've run, swam, and biked in numerous 10 K's, 1/2 marathon's and triathlons over the years but the Reggae Marathon in Negril pumps me up. Maybe its my Jamaican heritage or the fact that I love beaches...whatever the reason, I am totally jacked about it.
Sally and I made it down last year and made a number of friends. We're back again this year bringing Court with us. He and I are running the 1/2 marathon Saturday morning...that's going to be truly memorable.
As you know I've been blogging for the Reggae Marathon since September. It's been great to see the media coverage extending out now from all the blogging, tweeting and facebooking. Hey, that stuff really works! Team Lipstick from New York will be in Negril this year to train and run. They just like to run hard, play hard and have fun...all the really important values in life. Check out their story in the article below:
