Workers assemble the finish line for the New York City Marathon in Central Park, Thursday, Nov. 1, 2012.

Some marathoners aren’t taking no for an answer. Despite the annual New York City marathon’s cancellation Friday, a handful of participants said they will put their months of training to good use and will still follow the marathon’s route. One runner and his friends started a Facebook event encouraging others to “run it anyway for ourselves ... The show must go on.” Before you judge, he is also planning to volunteer for storm-cleanup efforts.
