What’s Happening? February 2019

February is prime tourist season here in Puerto Rico … the days are warm, the nights are cool, and it’s freezing up in the Great White North. From carnivals to coffee festivals to golf and marathons to food, drink and music events there are lots of things going on this time of year. While there is almost always something interesting happening somewhere in Puerto Rico, there are a few special events each month that deserve a mention. Here are a few of those events for February 2019.

Erroneamente, la palabra maratón se utiliza para referirse a cualquier carrera de cualquier distancia. Un verdadero maratón son 26.2 millas o 42 km. Para cualquiera que corre, cada paso cuenta. Por favor, usemos la palabra correcta. El "maratón" de San Blas es un medio maratón, 13.1 millas, una diferencia significante que determina la decisión de un atleta participar. Using the word marathon to refer to road races of any distance is a euphemism. A marathon is 26.2 miles, 42 km. To anyone who runs, every step counts. Use the correct terminoligy, road race(s). The San Blas marathon is in fact a half marthon, a difference of 13.1 miles and for any runner who might consider it, a game changer.
