I wrote about the Cruise to Run vacations before (click here), and am happy to report that these “run-cations” are still going strong despite the loss of founder and race director Jerry Friesen. Jerry, whom I interviewed about these runner’s cruises for my book, passed away in November of last year while out for his morning run. He was 51 years old.
Jerry’s wife Jody, along with the help of many of his longtime friends, have moved forward and continue to offer Cruise to Run vacations on Royal Caribbean ships. Go to their website for information on upcoming cruises, organized by runners for runners.
