Running in Havana

There's an annual marathon in Havana called the Havana Marathon or Marabana that draws about 2,500 international runners including Americans.  With the relaxing of relations between the US and Cuba and the introduction of a sports license that allows semi-professional and amateur athletes to compete in exhibitions and events on the island nation, more and more Americans are heading to Cuba to run.  I wrote a news feature on some South Florida runners who are training for the marathon which takes place Nov. 20.
