It was cold and windy in New York for Sunday’s New York Marathon. Congratulations to all who braved the conditions. For us at Reggae Marathon it was a great weekend at the Marathon Expo. We met a lot of old friends and made some new ones who will be coming to Negril in a few weeks for Reggae Marathon. From Larry Savitch of Easy Skankin to Lisa Laws and Reggae Runnerz to Rohan Dawes and Quicksilver Striders…thanks for spending time with us; we look forward to seeing you all in a few weeks for Reggae Marathon 2014.
