n the wake of Hurricane Sandy, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced late Friday that the New York City marathon will not take place on Sunday as planned. The move comes after the mayor faced bitter criticism for attempting to go forward with the event to "stimulate the economy" despite the fact that many city residents lost their homes and businesses and have gone days without power and water. It remains unclear if the race will be postponed or canceled entirely — not encouraging news for the tens of thousands of runners who traveled to the city from across the country and abroad for the event.
