He’s a physical fitness buff. Loves running. And he’s 100% Jamaican ‘by association’ in his words. That’s Larry Savitch who is back this December for his third-in-a-row Reggae Marathon. And yes he’s bringing a number of members from his Easy Skankin group for run, beach and sun. I wonder what T-Shirt design he’ll come up with this year?
Larry’s had a bit of a tough go running the past few months. He toughed his way through an intense race weekend and paid the price with a nagging knee injury. Like me, he’s been a bit cranky not being able to run regularly. And like me he has a very supportive wife! Thankfully. Larry, you and I are going to have to face reality: we are now
Seasoned Runners! Time to just go running.
That’s the thing about running. After you get through the obligatory ‘Competitive Phase’, you get to the ‘Zen Phase': running for the fun of it. That’s when running becomes the purest and most enjoyable: you just go out and run. After a few years of nagging foot injuries myself, I’m transitioning into the Zen Phase. Larry, care to join me this year? I know you love Reggae Marathon so let’s just go out for a run this December 7. If it turns into a PR…bonus! Then we can relax and enjoy a couple of Red Stripes on Sunday afternoon at Margaritaville.
Until next time…
