Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Races

Love Running, Love Jamaica

Love running, love Jamaica…a match made in Negril!

We met Tina Collin and Don Lovatt before the Pasta Party at Reggae Marathon 2017.  Both are from Sommerset, England and had made the trek to Negril for their first Reggae Marathon event.  What triggered the decision?  As Don put it, “Tina Loves Running, I love Jamaica…It’s the only way I’d ever run a marathon”.  I had to pause…that’s one of the best reasons I’ve heard over the years.

And they shared one more morsel:  Tina is 20 weeks pregnant.  She noted that she was still comfortable running and was planning on taking it easy out on the course Saturday.  Now that’s a unique Reggae Marathon Experience!

That’s Tina and Don getting caught up in a selfie moment…hey, that happens…it’s Reggae Marathon!  Tina, Don, so nice to have met you and for sharing your love running, love Jamaica story.  Keep in touch and hopefully we’ll see 3 of you back in Negril for Reggae Marathon in the future.

Until next time…
