The people of New York City have had a vey difficult time trying to find a way through the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Transportation, housing, food electricity, gasoline and the onset of cold weather have created hardships that are difficult to comprehend. At the same time, NYC has been trying to keep other aspects of life as normal as possible. However, running the Marathon was not one of them. It was a late call, but correct!
As I walked around Central Park there were many groups of runners participating in an in-park course. I was struck by the way many of them took advantage of the day and as I spoke with some of them they were unanimous that cancelling the race was the right thing to do.
In fact, many were donating to the relief effort as well as going to help with the clean up.
I decided that I would not show pictures of the damage to Central Park, rather I would show you the beauty that remains…
