What a bunch of puszies on this thread, indicative of the mentality that all marathons are becoming time trials and fun runs, not races.
Instead of nutting up and being able to say you ran NY in the toughest conditions, you've all already given up.
It's really a shame. The cool thing about marathons is you don't know what's going to happen and the good runners adapt, and run their best race.
My last Boston was the year of the Nor Easter and sure, I didn't PR but it was a tough, great experience that I talk about with pride, instead of whining that the weather prevented me from a PR.
And the biggest loser of all is this moron, who has been sucking up bandwidth here for months talking about his training, creepily stalking a woman and what he is going to do in the race and now, days before the race you've already conceded defeat. You are a loser on every level. now go ahead, tell us about the money you raised you weak minded tool.
