At 10:30 this morning I called a taxi for a trip to El Centro. The taxi company told me that they couldn’t get me to El Centro because of the big race. My guess is that it’s similar to a big city Marathon in North America. I thought I could catch a bus – No luck. I walked the 3 miles. There were large crowds cheering the runners on in two locations. I finally made it to my appointment. The video below is a 30 second clip of the race.
