It’s been a long winter this year in Minnesota. Yes, the sun is shining today, but the temperature is still only 21, and almost a foot of snow remains on the ground, with more possibly coming this week. We are all getting sick and tired of winter here!!! I think it’s time for some tracks in the tropics to help get rid of some winter blues. So the region of choice next is the Caribbean. I was in The Bahamas a few years ago, and just loved it, so that’s where we will start. In fact, I wish I was there now.
The track today is located inside Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium. This new stadium was still being built when I was there, and opened in 2011. It has a seating capacity of 23,000 people. There is a second warm-up track located just outside the stadium as well. Being a quarter-miler myself, I have been extremely impressed with the talent that is coming from The Bahamas lately in that event.
