Frigid conditions aggravate suffering for hundreds of thousands of Sandy victims

NEW YORK

Falling temperatures today put more people at risk in a region already battling gasoline shortages, stubborn power outages and spasms of lawlessness in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

With temperatures in the 30s and more than 700,000 people still without power in the area, some who were planning to run in the canceled New York City Marathon instead headed to Staten Island on Sunday morning to volunteer to help storm victims.

Other disappointed runners staged impromptu races of their own. Thousands poured into Central Park shortly after dawn including teams of runners from Italy, Germany and Spain who began running their own personal marathons. A little more than four laps around the park will do it.

It’s a throwback to the beginning of New York’s marathon, which was run inside the park.

“A lot of people just want to finish what they’ve started,” said Lance Svendsen, the organizer of a group called Run Anyway.

Some people run hell or high water. I have seen them running along the side of a road in 100 degree sunny weather here in Florida. Look like they are ready to die. What are they trying to prove ?
