|When did the new NYRR logo make its debut? Wouldn't 2012 be the first time it appears on a marathon medal?|
19 November 2012
In other less joyful marathon news, last week I finally made the trip to the NYRR office to pick up the medal for the cancelled NYC Marathon 2012. I know, I know, I didn't run it, why take it? But I heard about it being given out, so I might as well take it. There was still no words about refund of registration fees, still so at the time of this writing, so might as well get the most out of the $216 I already spent. Maybe I can eBay it some day to recuperate part of the $216. Or maybe I'll just put it next to the 2011 Go! St. Louis Marathon medal. You may recall that I did not get to run the full marathon in St. Louis because the weather was deemed too hot and the marathon course was closed a few hours in. I ended up running a half-marathon with a lousy time because I lost some time asking officials for confirmation. At the finisher tent, I asked for a full-marathon medal because I thought registration fee for the full was more than the half. I would never show the St. Louis medal without telling its history and same thing for the NYCM.
