Well said, Pudds. A rash political decision. Nowadays the world is governed by political correctness and NOT what is right.

Well done for going through with it anyway Pudds.

NYC authorities (especially the mayor) and NYRR have a lot to answer for for their handling of the situation.

That might just be one of my favourite forum posts ever. Pudds, would you consider writing one of Lord Fetch's articles?

Pudds has summed it up perfectly. Ditto my experience in NY. x

Well said Pudds. I unfortunately didn't get to NY. Flights cancelled a couple of times and by the time my flight was rearranged I was aware that the Marathon was going to be cancelled. So decided not to go. I think you are absolutely correct that the handling of the whole situation was poor. I'm not complaining even though I lost money, there were people who lost their lives and homes. What I have agreed to do for my charity is run a race called 'Joe's Not the New York Marathon' on Sunday 02-12-2012 in order that my charity can still collect the sponsorship which both them and me worked hard to raise. There's always next year for me.

Got something to say?
