I hold out the forlorn hope that the 2012 Marathon will be rescheduled and I'll get to have my day in the sun (or rain or sleet or snow or whatever). In the meantime, I'm recovering slowly from a marathon that I didn't get to run.
This was my own personal dream and one I'm not sure now will ever come true. However, had the marathon not been canceled, I am certain I would not have run. How could I face my community and my family and proudly say I ran in the 2012 NYC Marathon?
Every year the marathon is a celebration of the human spirit. Unlike other controversies he's been able to spin into praise, perhaps Bloomberg realized this time that he would have to rename the NYC Marathon the NYC Triathlon.
