MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Singer Prince Royce joined in on a warm-up race in Miami Beach, Saturday morning.
The Grammy-winning artist took part in the Fitbit Tropical 5K. The event is a warm-up for those running in the Fitbit Miami Marathon and Half Marathon on Sunday.
Royce is one of 25,000 runners who braved the windy weather to hit the pavement.
“I’m really into it. I’m surprised; I never really liked to run. I was never a cardio type of dude,” said Royce. “I did my first marathon in New York, and we had such a great time, so I’m out here this weekend to do the 5K, doing the Half [Marathon] tomorrow, so I’m running with a lot of my friends. I’m trying to get all my family members into running now.”
Royce placed 212th out of 2,100 racers. He will serve as the grand marshal and run in the Half Marathon on Sunday.
“I love to run here. You get to see the water. You get to see the beautiful palm trees, so I think it’s going to be a great run,” he said.
