Last night I submitted the request to get refund for the cancelled NYRR NYC Marathon. In four to six weeks, I'll get about $200 back as credit on my credit card. I can really use the money. Other people will go for the guaranteed entry for 2013 and future years. And pay all over again, albeit at 2012 price. That comes out to at least $400 for one race. That's one expensive race! More power to them!
In other running news, check out photos I took of the runners etc at yesterday's NYCRUNS Central Park 10-Miler. All the runners photos were from the 102nd Street Transverse and West Drive.
Some of the photos that I find more interesting than the rest, perhaps because of other park patrons or because the runners waved to me.
