Reggae Runnerz in Negril

In the photo above, those are just a few of the Reggae Runnerz who where in Jamaica last week for Reggae Marathon. And if you were at the Pasta Party last Friday night, you certainly could not have missed them!  From giving media interviews to racing on Saturday morning to their post-race Victory Celebration Dinner Saturday night, it was a non-stop runcation in Negril for the Reggae Runnerz.  (We hear they are already planning their return for Reggae Marathon next year on December 6, 2014 and have invited the men…)

Reggae Runnerz…nice to have met you in Negril last week.  Only 51 weeks to go to Reggae Marathon 2014, December 6.  See you in Negril next year!

Until next time…
