I must have been living behind a rock for the last two years. Mexico City does have a Marathon after all. If you fancy an energetic day out on August 26th, this is the place to be! I think I’ll just go and watch though….
Because, you see, I smoke. Which makes running 26 metres more work than I’d like, so 26 miles is pretty much out of the question. But there is something for me coming to Mexico! Philip Morris, the makers of Marlboro are increasing their presence here. They already have about half the share of tobacco sales here, but they want more.
What I really liked was a particular line from their PR dept….
Today’s announcement demonstrates our ongoing commitment to Mexico…
Sounds more than just a bit sinister if you ask me!
