It's a long road, it's a long and narrow wayBy http://profile.typepad.com/1237764140s22740 // November 3, 2012 in New York
New Yorkers didn't want the New York City Marathon to proceed this weekend, and runners who paid good money to travel to New York are upset that the cancellation wasn't announced sooner.
Nobody's asking me, but here's a 20/20 hindsight suggestion for what the organizers might have said earlier in the week: "We want the race to take place. We believe we have the support of the mayor. But the situation here is uncertain. We'll do our best, but don't be surprised if city resources have to be diverted and the race has to be canceled."
