Not everyone can be as effusive as the Reggae Marathoner above. In addition to regular training it’s important to to get the ‘Wave’ right for the Reggae Marathon photographers. Helping you get ready are examples from a
few Reggae Marathon runners:
A casual flip of the hand is a good place to start. It shows confidence and acknowledges the feat of running in Reggae Marathon.
A bit more expressive, this wave shows off a genuine smile. Yes we got up well before dawn but it was worth it. Running and having fun.
Taking it up another notch is the extended arm wave. We get a lot of these at Reggae Marathon. It must have something to do with running in Negril in December.
“Triumph”. This we usually see coming down the Reggae Marathon Finish Chute. When we get this wave from a runner out on course, we smile every time. So as you continue your racing and training this summer, remember to practice your Reggae Marathon Wave!
Until next time…
