A Perfect Day in Negril

What’s your idea of a perfect day in Negril?  We asked a few runners who make the pigramage to Negril every December for Reggae Marathon…here are their descriptions of a perfect day in Negril:

  • Stan:  I get up early, make a cup of coffee and take it out to the beach…I love watching the smooth-as-glass water first thing in the morning
  • Judy: Every day is perfect in Negril!
  • Betty:  I love long barefoot walks along the entire length of Negril beach…sometimes I stop and buy some fresh orange juice from a vendor…nothing tastes better!
  • Rob:  It has to be the Jerk!  Probably eaten at every Jerk place and tried every drum chicken guy in Negril.
  • Jim:  Early morning run followed by breakfast on the beach.
  • Sally:  It’s the sun.  I’m a sun worshiper and look forward to staking my lounge chair early each day
  • Ronnie:  Running with my wife in Reggae Marathon.  We did our first Reggae Marthon on a whim, caught the bug and are back for our third consecutive year this December.  Can’t wait!
  • Lisa:  I made some friends here my first time and we’ve all been coming back since.  It’s the best time.
  • Effron:  Running with my sons.  We talk about it and plan for it all year.  Drives my wife crazy!
  • Diane:  Every day is a perfect day as long as I’m in Negril…what a silly question.

What’s your idea of a perfect day in Negril?

Until next time…
