Inside the New York City non-Marathon

Less than a week after Superstorm Sandy

slammed the Northeast, the New York City Marathon was canceled.

But that didn't mean folks weren't running. They did, some going it for

charity. Yahoo! Sports social editor Eric Orvieto (@eorvieto) provided photos and observations while he jogged his way around Central Park. Oh, and if you'd like to help, you can right here.

Amazing views during the #unofficial #nycmarathon
