As of now, everything is cancelled.
But when I asked a question of maybe letting the emotions die down for a while and then look at running the pro race somewhere else and in a different location, Mary R. didn't complete rule it out. She seemed to think it was worth contemplating.
Along those lines, I asked the Deputy Mayor if the Mayor's office thought the NY Giants game tmw should be cancelled. Of course, a pro event - whether it's the Giants tmw or the Knicks earlier in the week - or the New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina - would never be cancelled. It would be at most post-poned and maybe be relocated.
And they have 18 or 82 paychecks a year - a marathoner only has 3.
If the pro race is cancelled, it shows that the professional aspect of the marathon isn't really important or viewed as a REAL pro sport.
So LetRunners - let's unite and come up with a location and date for the elite race.
What marathons are next weekend?
I'm thinking it's easiest to do at either a pre-existing marathon, on a loop course maybe in Central Park (but not his weekend as it's too controversial), or just in some random small town.
