If an yof you were planing to run the Marathon here is an alternative. I received this e mail from an other meetup group The Dasing Whippets ( runing group) and thought to pass it on.
Jeremy and Catie of the whippets have volunteered to organize an alternative NYC Marathon.
They will plan to run in Central Park. Feel free to join them for a mile, a lap or 26.2 miles. Please also consider donating to Mwangi and Becky's Suck it Sandy relief effort: bit.ly/suckitsandy, or the NYRR Hurricane Sandy relief effort: http://www.crowdrise.com/nyrrsandyrelief#
Let's show that the NY running community, like NYC itself, is resilient.
Have great Run.
