Don’t look for 2009 NYC Marathon Champ Meb Keflezighi in Mammoth this weekend, he’ll be in New York running the 2012 Marathon. NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Wednesday the race is a go. Keflezighi has six top-10 finishes in seven New York City marathons, and last year ran a personal best of 2:09:13 in the race. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Keflezighi told the media, “It will be motivation to say, `Look what happened, and we’ll put on the race, and we’ll give them a good show.’” Run to win, Meb!
