21K Xela Marathon

I woke up at 7 this Sunday and went out to see the runners. I started to walk towards La Rotonda y Valle De Las Rosas. Not too long after I started to walk, I came across the first runners. Watching those people, trying really hard to finish a marathon made me wanna try this at one point in my life. You gotta be really ambitious, though.

The night before the big marathon, I was having some drinks with my friends at Salon Tecun. And they were telling me how some runners defecate in their pants, because they can’t stop during a marathon, that can take hours. And the next morning, I saw these two guys, taking a short break from the marathon to take each other’s photos with their cell phones. “Ellos me fascinan”.

And apparently, there were some Japanese runners in the marathon. Their supporters could be defined as “hardcore” in my terms. I mean, all those signs, banners and cheering for the runners… Not much to say…
