Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Races

Ten Years of The Reggae Marathon

Ten Years of The Reggae Marathon

I have participated in the Reggae Marathon for the last ten years. (Full disclosure, I do the half marathon. I’m not fast enough to do the marathon and finish before dinner time!) The first year I went there, I was going to run my second half marathon. I was still very new to running and had no idea what I was in for. I went to the pasta party and that is when I was first introduced to rasta pasta!! And I had so many options of rasta pasta to choose from.

Reggae Marathon 2018

On race morning, it was hot and humid and very dark! I truly was not prepared. I was hoping to get a PR at this race (my second half marathon.) For almost two and a half hours, I ran, shuffled and walked the course. When I finished, I was relieved. And each of the following years, I felt that same sense of relief. I don’t PR every year, some years, I don’t even come close. But I am proud that each year I push through and finish.

See you in December!
