Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Races

Reggae Marathon Race Day

Race Day. My 3:15 am wake up alarm went off but I was up already with excitement.  I had multiple alarms set:  My Smartphone of course, a battery operated analogue clock (old school) and my Timex Ironman wrist watch…talk about overkill.  It was quite the melody until I turned them all off.

Having my usual pre-race breakfast this morning:  Breakfast bars, Dried Cereal and Milk.  It’s not Ackee and Saltfish with fried Plantains…that’ll be on Sunday!  Then it’s off for the short walk with a lot of other like-minded runners to the Start at Long Bay Beach Park.  I can hear the loud Reggae Music already…

Race Day!!

Torches, Drums, Bob Marley.  Race Director Frano sends us off at 5:15 am sharp!  Don’t be late!!

I have butterflies in my stomach before the start of every race and Reggae Marathon but Reggae Marathon takes it up a notch. Reggae Marathon Rocks!

Until next time…
