|After 26.2 miles, you're in Negril!|
Alas, it was not to be; a spate of injuries kept me from running that year. But as a result of my interest in the race, Diane Ellis (the Reggae Marathon's Sponsorship and Marketing Director) and I became regular correspondents on a wide range of subjects ranging from our kids (we've both got sons about the same age) to running (of course). Even though we've never met, Diane and I became great friends via email and Facebook. That's how it came to be that she invited me to be a guest blogger for the race's new blog. It was an offer I accepted eagerly.
So, starting next week, I'll begin guest posting on a range of running-related subjects including — you won't be surprised to hear — barefoot running. I'll let you know when the blog launches and when my posts run. I certainly hope you'll check out the race site. And if you're looking for a first class running event that's just a blast, the Reggae Marathon is one you ought to consider.
