Rondel Village on the beach in Negril is home base for Reggae Marathon. It's about a mile and a half from the start/finish area at Long Bay Beach Park. That makes for a comfortable pre-race warm up walk Saturday morning. Rondel Village is an intimate resort made up of a number of 3 story buildings nestled on a gorgeous stretch of white sand beach. The place is lush with tropical vegitation and the walk along the paths to the beach is like walking through a jungle.
Getting settled in at Rondel Village takes no time: Quick check in, bag dropped off in my room, change into swimming trunks then down to the beach. That's day one. For the rest of the time it's early morning running, breakfast in the beachside restaurant then sun, sun, sun... Premium Grade Vitamin D!
We talk and talk and talk...and not just about running. With active families and lifestyles, it takes time to catch up on all the goings on over the past year. Yeah we have social media but it's better face-to-face. And what makes Rondel Village even better? No shoes no problem...bathing suit morning till night.
Gotta go now...back to the Vitamin D.
Until next time...
