JG’s Up Close: Upstate runner talks about how marathoners came together to run and help those impacted by Sandy.


Rebecca Gordon Pike lives in Greenville  and had planned to run the New York City marathon after years of hoping to get in. After driving through the night to make to the city on Friday, Mayor Bloomberg called the marathon off. Rebecca spoke to me by phone about how many of the runners decided to Run Anyway while also helping the NY families impacted by Hurricane Sandy. She also shared some photos from today’s event.
