Friends disperse back to regular, day-to-day lives but we stay connected on Instagram and Facebook.  In a few months we can start thinking about our next time to ...[Read More]

We’ve got 3 days to Reggae Marathon 2018.  Time for a little relaxation on the beach today.  But first, a run… I promised myself I’d run easy this morning.  A short run to get acclimatized to the Negril sun and temperatures.  Mostly I was a good boy but I just had to punch out a sprint back to the hotel.  It felt great!  It’s nice to be back in Negril.
