Hello to all....I am arriving 11/30/2009! We are coming with 8 or 9 other couples. We are then leaving on 12/8/2009. My wife and I are celebrating our 10 year wedding Anniv. on 12/4/2009. Sixth time back. Love it.
I have never did this marathon before. The hunidity will be the challenging part for me. I have been training in the mid day here in Iowa.
How about you, have you ran the marathon before and when are you arriving?
We arrive on December 2nd (leaving the west coast of Canada on the 1st). I am going to have to aclimatize to the heat and humidity fairly quickly, so I will be doing a couple of training runs when I get there.
Cindy isn't running. She plans to be at the finish line to pick me up when I fall down there
This will be my 6th trip to Negril, but our first stay at Couples Negril. I have run the road in to town many times, but never in a race situation.
this is a good marathon, fast flat, but it is all in the open not much shade,the early start helps but it is already hot and humid at 5:15 am
last year I did the half and finished 2:27 (yah, I am slow, plus I did not train for it) at 7:30 it was about 80 degrees and humid, the full marathon is also all open and hot, so take water, there are a lot of water stops
we arrive Dec 3 and leave the 12th, get this run over early in the week, there are shuttles going up and down the course to get you there and get back, I walked back last year , 1.5 miles,
se you all in December ,,,,,80 days
