The first Reggae Marathon beach run!
This is the view I'll be facing for my first run on the beach in Negril just ahead of the Reggae Marathon Dec 3.
We're staying at Rondel Village this year. We've never stayed there before but are looking forward to it. It's a small boutique hotel directly on the Negril beach about 1 1/2 miles from the start of Reggae Marathon. That will make for a nice warm up walk early Saturday morning before the 5:15 am start.
The big decision for this first run is barefoot or shoes? On one hand I have been running in minimalist shoes from Puma (Puma Faas 500's) and have made the transition successfully to forefoot running so a barefoot run on the sand would be fun. On the other hand, I don't want to risk an injury 2 days before the Reggae Marathon. I'll let you know after.
Until next time...
