dustman81: Ron White said it best: "It's not that the wind is blowing, it's what the wind is blowing."
gingerjet: //New Yorkers are assholes
TheOtherMisterP: I assume dumbass tag is for subby?The city was closing down, streets were empty, it was nice and cool - no risk of overheating. Sounds like a great time to go for a run.
JerseyTim: The marathon is this weekend. I bet they're trying to stay on schedule.
thisiszombocom: marathon is on sunday dumbass subby. id be out there as well if i were running it.
HellRaisingHoosier: It looked like grey skies while those pictures were taken, nothing horrible.Besides, the NYC Marathon this week!
gingerjet: If they don't go for their daily run - it would mean that the hurricane won./or something//New Yorkers are assholes
cgraves67: If they were actually running in hurricane weather, I would join in the mockery. The weather seems relatively clear though, so I see no reason for them not to be out. I would probably be out for a leisurely stroll myself, ogling the damage.
TheOtherMisterP: They should be tapering if their race is this weekend. No amount of training at this point is going to help them on Sunday.Tapering doesn't mean you stop running completely. It's important to do short 3-5 mile runs to stay loose. They aren't training at this point, they are maintaining conditioning.
Gunny Highway: If Gabriel wants to roller blade, Gabriel roller blades.
hammettman: I witnessed multiple, let me repeat, MULTIPLE joggers out for a run.
theorellior: hammettman: I witnessed multiple, let me repeat, MULTIPLE joggers out for a run.Joggers are nuts. End of story.
TheOtherMisterP: Delaying it a day or two is not going to have any adverse affect come race time. I've had my best times doing very little in the days leading up to a race.But why bother delaying a run at all? That's the whole point of mocking subby for the dumbass tag. There was no reason NOT to go running in New York Sunday afternoon.
CheetahOlivetti: theorellior: hammettman: I witnessed multiple, let me repeat, MULTIPLE joggers out for a run.Joggers are nuts. End of story.True. This has nothing to do with them being New Yorkers. I run while festooned with ice packs, water packs, and water bottles to keep up training on hot days (Phoenix summers). I'm sure people think I'm an idiot. Don't care.
