Serena Williams Caught Hailing a Taxi During Her Own 5K Charity Run

The extremely fit tennis star, Serena Williams, did the unthinkable this past weekend at her own 5K race.

The Serena Williams Live Ultimate Run South Beach 2015 event in Miami was held to raise money for her own fund. However, at around the 2km mark, she was seen jumping into a taxi that then sped to the finish line.

Along with 3,000 other runners, she started the race strong. She sported a bright orange Nike t-shirt and black leggings. She was a hard sight to miss.

Witnesses at the event say she was running well before she stopped to climb into a bright yellow cab.

Although her reason for her inability to finish the race is unknown, sources are saying it is likely due to her injuries. She announced that she would take the year off to recover from a “series of injuries” back in October.
