As the East coast braces for Hurricane Sandy, marathon preparations are under way in New York City. The city is expecting storm surge and possible flooding; some areas near the course could be affected. But the storm should be gone by marathon morning on Sunday, Nov. 4, when the streets will be flooded with people.
This week’s episode of NYRR On the Run takes a look back at the 2011 ING New York City Marathon to help getting runners pumped for this year’s event.
But we also explore the state of U.S. distance running. Meb Keflezighi, Shalane Flanagan, Kara Goucher, Matt Centrowitz, Leo Manzano, Galen Rupp, Jenny Simpson and more pro runners weigh in, along with Sharon Eckstrom of marathonguide.com.
