On Runners' World's website, there was an FAQ about the 2012 New York City Marathon. It had more information than the NYRR has been able to push out to its members and marathoners. I, like so many runners, am disappointed at not being able to race. I am also not so pleased about shelling out many hundreds of dollars to change my flights, eat, and get around New York when the race was off. I was lucky in that I have a place to stay. Some out of staters spent upwards of $2500 to get to and stay in New York.
Those people calling for legal action against Bloomberg, or getting all their money back from the city are assholes.
Plain and simple, they are assholes.
Deduct the cost of your bib from your taxes. Talk to you accountant about ways to mitigate other expenses. Never go back to the best city in the world. But to bring legal action against a city that still has well over 50,000 people without heat or power is not even close to ok.
Sure be disappointed. Vent online but don't even kid about bring legal action, asshole.
