Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Races

Miami to Negril

Miami to Negril … Registered and Confirmed!

Meet Yanira Nia Vazquez originally from the Dominican Republic but who has lived n Miami, Florida since she was 12 year old.  Yanira’s registered for Reggae Marathon December recently and since it will be her first Reggae Marathon, is super excited!

Yanira started running when she was 9 years old and continued competing in School Field Days throughout Elementary and Middle School. Her Dad got her involved in running and she noted, “It was the best thing he did!”

She’s hoping to bring along a group of running friends from Miami as well hopes they will all have fun. We know the answer to that don’t we:  YES!  I haven’t met a Reggae Marathoner yet who hasn’t had a great time on the beach before and after running in Reggae Marathon.

That’s Yanira with her proud Mom showing off her Finisher’s Medal in a recent race.  What’s Yanira looking forward to when she arrives in Negril this December?  “The people, the Music, the Food”. Reggae Marathon soon come Yanira!

Until next time…
