Timing and Other Issues

As I write this on Friday afternoon, using my phone, New York City still plans to go ahead as scheduled rhis Sunday morning. As a runner, as someone who has competed in the past two New Jersey Marathons, let me say that it is a decision I do not understand. It is one with which I do not agree.

As I write this, our power remains out. That is a distinction my home shares with two million others in the New York metropolitan area. Ours is a region that has been punched hard in the throat. Resources are stretched thin. Nerves are frayed. Having this event this Sunday in New York City seems to be nothing short of insensitive and inane.
