Yes, the ING NYC marathon has been cancelled. Thanks for all the comments, emails, texts, phone calls, etc.
I only have a minute but in a nutshell - I think canceling was the right decision although I also think the way this has been handled is terrible. The decision should have been made days ago, not 36 hours before runners were supposed to start boarding buses on race morning. There is a lot of upset towards the runners and from the runners and all of the nastiness isn't helping anyone.
My thoughts and prayers are with all who have suffered loss in this devastating storm. I love this city and its people.
