Stephanie Theis from Luxembourg celebrates turning 30 in Negril at Reggae Marathon this December. Now that’s the way to celebrate a milestone birthday!
I’m from Luxembourg, a very small country in the heart of Europe next to Germany, Belgium and France. I can speak English, French an German. I’ve been running for two and a half years now. During this time I’ve run some half Marathons in Luxembourg, Germany and France…I think about 10 so far. I also do also obstacle running. That’s why I also do a lot of muscle and strength training.
I started running because I like being outside in the forest or nature. You can also run on the treadmill but for me it’s different. I can free my mind best when I run through the woods.
I was in Negril 3 years ago and i just loved the Jamaican mentality.
I love Usain Bolt…what a man…what a talent…what a runner!
I love jerk chicken.
I love the sundown at Rick’s Café and jumping off the cliffs.
I loved getting up early just to see the Jamaican sunrise before breakfast while walking along the beach.
These are things we don’t have in Luxembourg. In fact I always told myself doing something special or crazy before I turn 30 years old…so that’s it…I fly to Jamaica to run the Reggae Half Marathon before I turn 30 years old on December 22 this year. I’ll stay in Jamaica for 12 days and my father and his wife (they married 3 years ago in Negril) will join me on Sunday evening after the marathon.”
Stephanie we have something else in common: We are both from small countries, but we Mighty! See you in Negril December 2!
Until next time…
