Caribbean Running Cruise Race Report
We loved the 2015 Caribbean Running Cruise -- huge thanks to John, Jenny, Mila, Karen, and our fellow running cruisers! I can honestly recommend this trip to runners, walkers, singletons, couples, what have you. There's plenty of support and love for anyone who moves at any speed, as long as you are willing to have fun.
To help anyone in the future who might be on the fence about whether this cruise is for them, I've put together this "omnibus" post -- with links to each day's write-up.
Day 1 - Embarcation Day, when we sailed from Fort Lauderdale and met our fellow cruisers
Day 2 - Sunday Night Lights Predictor Run, when we ran laps on a very blustery night ... with glow necklaces!
Day 3 - At Sea, when we learned about the Penguin Plan
Day 4 - St. Maarten Scenic Run, when we ran along the seafront in Philipsburg
Day 5 - St. Kitts Rain Forest Hash, when we ran with a local Hash House Harriers group
Day 6 - San Juan Amazing Race, when we ran amok in the streets, dressed as pirates (and that was before the piña coladas...)
Day 7 - Haiti Relays, when we met some of the Street Hearts boys and ran through the "island paradise" of Labadee
Day 8 - At Sea, and a Celebration, when we celebrated our successes, honored our winners, and met the captain
Day 9 - Debarkation Day, when it took us a Very Long Time to get home
Now... where shall we go next?
