Last year’s Reggae Marathon was nothing like anyone could have predicted. Like most races, it went virtual. I ran the half marathon in memory of my friend Jen Goldstein who won the Reggae Marathon back in 2011. And after reading some stories about other’s Reggae Marathon experience, it seems as if others also ran their virtual race for someone. So everyone has a different reason for running a race whether in person or virtual.
What I did love so much about the Reggae Marathon last year was seeing all of the photos from runners from all around the world. Usually we are used to athletes wearing shorts and tanks and a hat to keep the sun off your face. But this time around, we received pictures from runners wearing hats and gloves, running tights and jackets. And with the option for a virtual run for 2021, it’s likely we will see more Reggae Marathon runners wearing their tights and jackets. So have you thought about what distance you are going to run in December?
Don’t forget to check out our YouTube pace with a nice compilation video with photos from our runners from around the world.
Keep on running!
