If you’ve run the Reggae Marathon more than once, you probably came back because you had a memorable experience. My most memorable experience was my ninth year. To say the least, the Reggae Marathon is not always my best half marathon. I don’t always have enough time to acclimate to the heat and my training leading up to the race isn’t always the best it could be. But my ninth, year, I had a breakthrough.
In my ninth Reggae Marathon, I fueled well at the Pasta Party, got a good night’s sleep, and was well hydrated. I knew the stars were aligned for a good race. And in 2018, I had the best Reggae Marathon that I ever had. I had a good PR! It felt good to finally have a good race in the place that had become my second home. It only took nine tries, but I got it and it felt good.

See you in December!
