NEW YORK — Adam Frye got the news when he arrived at the Javits Center on Friday to pick up his packet of material for the New York City Marathon.
The race was canceled. Blame it on Sandy.
“I just flew out today,” said Frye, who lives in St. Paul, Minn. “I think I’m a little bit shocked. I never really thought they would cancel it. I kind of feel like they waited to cancel it until people like me had already come so we could spend our money.”
He was out $250 for the race fee and $300 for the flight.
