From a NYC Marathon runner on my FB page…she needs a medal! 

Penny KrakoffING New York City Marathon

I am registered to run the race. Picked up my packet today. I cannot start a 26.2 mile run in Staten Island- people are missing, stranded, in need of resources. Brooklyn and Queens have equal devastation. Parts of Manhattan are without electricity, water, major hospitals are closed. The Bronx too has its own challenges. Tomorrow I will volunteer at a city evacuation shelter. Sunday morning I will catch the Marathon bus to Staten Island. Not planning to run. Plan to volunteer instead. Let’s not waste resources and attention on a foot race. Who is with me?
