I get what you are saying Roger, many runners won't wait that long, they are looking around for some other marathon coming up that's not too far away and not closed already.
So yeah, for me, three hundred and sixty blah blah days until the next NYC Marathon....I may be tempted to do some other one, it would have to be a BIG temptation.
I did make the LA TIMES.
Many runners already had decided not to participate this year.
Jonathan Jeffries, 65, a Manhattan business executive, said he had planned not to run his fifth marathon out of concern for police, ambulance attendants and others who assist the race. "These people are dead on their feet. I can't ask them to work on a Sunday and make sure I can have an ice pack on my knee at mile 26," he said.
"We are going to run some other day," he said. "This weekend, we are going to go out and help people."
