True confession: I procrastinate. Just ask my wife Sally. But there is one thing that I never fool around with and that is planning my annual trip to Negril for Reggae Marathon. I’m planning for the next year while I’m running down the Reggae Marathon Finish Chute! This December 7 will be my 5th consecutive Reggae Marathon and no my bags are not packed yet but I’ve registered for the Half Marathon already and have also booked my airline and hotel! I had to: the lovely ladies from Black Girls Run have over 100 ladies registered already. And we are only in early March!
I know some of you are travel do-it your selfers and there’s nothing wrong with that. For some of you, that thought brings a shudder. To ease the travel stress, Reggae Marathon has partnered with some excellent Travel companies some of whom have some great value packages to Negril for Reggae Marathon. I’ll list a few of them here but go to this link on the Reggae Marthon web site for the full listing: Reggae Marathon Travel Partners.

OK, I lied. I do have one bag packed already for Reggae Marathon December 7. I’ve already packed a pair of gently used running shoes that I’ll be bringing with me to Negril to donate. When it comes to my running, I NEVER procrastinate!
Until next time…
