Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Races

Runners Re-capping Reggae Marathon 2012

A lot of really nice runners had a good time at Reggae Marathon 2012.  I was fortunate to have met

some personally both at the Reggae Marathon Pasta Party, the race Saturday morning and at the post-race party.  Some of these runners shared their stories and today, the final day of 2012, here are some of them:

  • Pete Estabrooks enjoyed his first experience at Reggae Marathon last December…and shared his experience in this article in Impact:  Reggae Marathon Run Love.
  • Niran Vinod writes a blog called ‘Yin and Yan’.  He shared his excellent Reggae Marathon Adventure along with some great pictures of the race in his Reggae Marathon race re-cap:  Yin and Yan Reggae Marathon 2012.
  • Larry Savitch and Easy Skankin returned for their second-in-a row Reggae Marathon.  Larry loves Jamaica and isn’t shy about sharing his feelings.  Here’s his Reggae Marathon 2012 re-cap:  Return to Paradise.
  • Lorraine, AKA ‘Ask Wifey’ told her Reggae Marathon story in video form.  I especially like how she captured the early morning, pre-dawn experience of the 5:15 am start.  Here’s her re-cap:  Reggae Marathon Race Day.
  • Dan Cumming from British Columbia, Canada was also back for his second Reggae Marathon.  And this year he made it to the start on time and had a fine half marathon run.  Dan is a seasoned runner and writes about running on his blog, Running in the Zone.  Here’s his very comprehensive Reggae Marathon 2012 race re-recap:  Dan’s Excellent Reggae Marathon Adventure.
  • Jenn Gruden of More Magazine ran her first 10K at Reggae Marathon 2012.   Here’s the re-cap of her experience (including some nice photos of Negril):  How to run 10K in Paradise.
  • This next post from Pili also has a lot of great photos of Negril and Reggae Marathon.  It’s in Spanish, but is a great re-cap of her experience at Reggae Marathon 2012:  Reggae Marathon 2012.
  • All the way from … British Columbia, Canada to run in Reggae Marathon.  Love the re-cap (captures all the details of the early morning race experience) and especially love the photo of them jumping in the air on the beach:  Reggae Marathon 2012.
  • And not to be outdone, our friends from Washington, DC, Bob Moore and the entire team at Run Washington were back at Reggae Marathon.  Here’s their excellent race re-cap:  Reggae Marathon 2012
  • Here is a really nice Reggae Marathon race re-cap written by Dave Major of Running Free Magazine:  Get up, Stand up!  Scroll through the magazine to page 34, 35 for Dave’s story.
  • From our long-time sponsor’s Puma, here’s their blog post on Reggae Marathon receiving the Abe Issa Award for Excellence
