Finally the decision has been made to cancel the New York City Marathon. It is very unfortunate that they waited so long to make this decision. Many people will now be out money now that had already made arrangements and flew into the city. It was very apparent early this week that the race would be very difficult to still prepare for this race.
My wife and I were given the opportunity to run in it his year and had decided not to 2 weeks ago. We made the right decision.

Good call Nick. I heard about them bringing in generators for media coverage while half of lower Manhattan still has no power. They should have definitely cancelled it sooner.
