VIDEO: What I did on marathon morning instead
The 2012 New York Marathon was cancelled on Friday, 2 November, a couple of days before the race was due to run.
Hurricane Sandy caused widespread devastation throughout Staten Island, Lower Manhattan and along the New Jersey coast on Monday, 29 October. Calls for cancellation of the looming marathon surfaced immediately. This video (with the help of a Flip camera and iMovie) is of the 10-mile run I did instead.
