Half Marathon & 10K Races

6 Days to Reggae Marathon 2018

6 days to Reggae Marathon, Sunday, December 2 in Negril!  I’ve had that date seared into my mind for the past year and now that we are days away, I’m unbearable at home!  Thankfully I have an understanding spouse!

So for Negril I keep my packing simple.  Obviously I start with my running gear:

  • Two Running tops, technical short sleeve running tops.
  • My short tights…I’ve grown accustomed to running in tights…feels more comfortable
  • Running shoes.  Just one pair for Negril.  And not a new pair…I like to break in a new pair at least a couple of months before race day.
  • Running socks.  I like the low-cut style.  I’ve tried running commando in Negril but I’ve found that uncomfortable.
  • Running cap.  Since I’ve been running the 10K for the past few years I don’t usually wear a cap during the race.  After though, it helps keep the sun out of my eyes and my head cool.

The rest?  Swimsuit, T Shirts,  a couple pairs of shorts, sandals.  Hey…Negril is the Capital of Casual!

Until next time…
