Breaking news... they just cancelled this year's New York City Marathon:
Probably the right decision, given the fact that the city is still recovering from the hurricane. I admire the efforts of the city and New York Road Runners for trying to pull off the race. New Yorkers are resilient, and I'm sure this was a tough call, but sometimes it's best to cancel a race.
I was in Raleigh this weekend for the City of Oaks Marathon and the organizers kindly opened up slots for anyone who was racing NYC. It's too bad the mayor waited until Friday to cancel NYC.
I was in Raleigh watching the marathon! How did it go for you!?
