Celine Bally, 42, of French Martinique, gives a thumbs-down in front of the Central Park finish line for the now canceled New York Marathon, Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012, in New York. Bally and her friend Virginia Arminjon, right, also from Martinique, traveled to New York to participate in the footrace and will leave disappointed. Mayor Michael Bloomberg canceled the race after mounting criticism that this was not the time for a race, as the city continues to recover from Superstorm Sandy.(AP Photo/ John Minchillo)
