I love getting up early to go running and Reggae Marathon delivers on that with the 5:15 am start. My advice: get your sleep in the next 8 days!
The pre-race buzz and excitement is truly magical before the 5:15 am start at Long Bay Beach Park. Get there early to check your bags, hit the rest rooms, grab some plastic pouch hydration and just drink in the Reggae Marathon vibe. Lots of reggae!
And I know what you're thinking about that start time: let me tell you, Race Director Frano is extremely punctual. Don't be one of those racing in the opposite direction at 5:20 am to cross the start line. Don't laugh, I've seen runners doing that!
And especially get your days right:
I'm is so excited about my 3rd Reggae Marathon experience this year that I miss-counted the days. Duh! Yes, we have 8 days until Reggae Marathon 2011!
So get your sleep now. And remember, there will be lots of time to catch up next Saturday afternoon after the Reggae Marathon.
Until next time…
