    God Sandy looks f8Cking awful. Thoughts go out to all affected.
    Sad for everyone who got ready for the marathon as well, but I suppose cancellation was the only reasonable option. I hope that the resources can be diverted towards where they can be best used.
    3 miles w/ strides for me today.
    Nervous about my 5k tomorrow - legs feeling sore, but that's not always terrible before a race.

    Thanks SBB. As far as the marathon goes, this is ALL on an out of touch mayor (and honestly, most politicians fall into this boat). Had the race been cancelled even as late as Wednesday, so many wouldn't have had such (deserved) ill feelings towards the city and NYRR.

    5.4 miles. First run this week - messed up my hip during a workout on Wednesday. Probably ran too much too soon. :uhoh:

    Yeah, I couldn't believe it when Bloomberg insisted that the marathon needed to go on as scheduled, especially when he said that it wouldn't divert any resources away from those that still needed help in Sandy's aftermath.

    Bloomberg continues to maintain that the race would not have diverted resources. He's an idiot. Generators, Port-a-Potties, water, law enforcement, volunteers, etc. planned for the race could definitely be used to help people in distress from the storm. Closing streets and bridges when people needed to have resources delivered to them would have been wrong, plain and simple.

    They did finally make the right call, though way too late. Better late than not at all from the perspective of the victims, but as a racer, I would be pissed that the call wasn't made days earlier.

    13.1. My first half is in the books! The course for the SF US Half is hilly. Much more so than I realized, so I'm super chuffed to have hit my target. Finished just under 2 hours. Despite getting passed like crazy in the first half of the race, I stuck to my pace as best as I could. Some of the people started coming back to me on the downhill after the Golden Gate Bridge. The last two miles told the tale of all the hills, though. Brutal, and a big hill in the last half mile going over Fort Mason.

    5.85 today on my regular route
    This two mile span may as well be 2 million miles. My side of the bridge its life as usual, other side so far from it :(

    But then there's this:

    I tied my towel on the railing here on my run before the storm, and its still there knotted. Hope that the city can be as resilient as this NY Rangers towel.:slayer:

    Hey all,

    Just wanted to check in. Alls well in North Brooklyn, though I went 5 days without power. I also worked open to close at the NYCM marathon expo each day. I have compassion for the hurricane victims, the tourists in town, the emergency workers, my friends who missed out on the run, be it their first or 10th marathon, and everyone in between.

    Running is slow going. Recovering from my own marathon and not a whole lot of time otherwise. It's been about the last thing on my mind.

    Just caught up on the thread and I'm proud of everyone's races. Once I have some, I'll post some more running exploits.

    Welcome back to the 21 Century! When I was on Staten Island volunteering I saw a few people jogging through the affected neighborhoods...I have to assume they were residents who just needed a break, just goes to show you the power of running. I'm VERY glad the marathon was cancelled, I feared it may have even turned violent toward runners (especially the elite group) as people were becoming extremely pissed and vocal. It wasn't right and shame on NYRR AND the Mayor for not dealing with it sooner than they did.

    Well said NYR. Had my first marathon today in Raleigh (City of Oaks Marathon). Went fairly well, although it was a cold start, and rain right before the start and running in vibrams meant wet feet and some serious blisters. Finished just over 4 hours, actual time should be posted tonight on their website. 1st pic is about around mile 17, second is my buddy who trained with me (his first marathon too).

    11 miles yesterday, temps in the mid 80s and sunny. The heat slowed me down a bit but I pushed through and finished. This week is going to be a recovery week for me with some shorter runs, I don't think I can bump up my max distance again just yet.

    Congrats on the races SB and JS! Very well done, big milestones for the both of you. I have my first half marathon in February, definitely looking forward to it!

    I put in 6.5 miles this morning in the chilly, pre-dawn hours.

    Early Saturday afternoon I decided to go for a longer run and got in about 12 miles when I just didn't want to be out any longer. When I turned to head home (I was still about 3 miles out) I decided to head over to a side street that I was expecting to see my wife driving down soon and hoped to thumb a ride from her. Unfortunately, she was running a bit later than I had imagined and pulled into the driveway about the same time I was walking up to the front porch.

    Way to go Sugarbutch and J4 on first time marathon/half marathons.
    Just awesome stuff.
    I hope it keeps you wanting to race!
    For me 9.2 easyish tonight.
    Still pissed about my 1642 yesterday. . . . . I will run a fast 5k eventually I promise!

    Link to my splits. Blegh. Couldn't get my legs moving down the downhills but ran well uphill. I think the stressful week/life in general didn't help me out either. Still had a good last 400 and 1642 not that bad.
    Here are some final 400 pics lol . . . . . Me OverPronating:

    I love running in the snow... not in the mornings though I don't trust drivers out on the roads with ice/snow in the early morning.

    In light of not having the Marathon on Sunday - I ran 26.2 in the Park - 3:40:33. It was pretty crazy to see so many people out there, was hard to even move around the finish line area.
