Government Isn't Running, And Neither Will Participants Of Va. Half Marathon

In Virginia, organizers of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half Marathon have decided to postpone the race because of the government shutdown.

The first eight miles of the course is on the George Washington Memorial Parkway, which is a national park and subject to the shutdown. The half marathon's founder Steve Nearman says the decision was "very difficult, very complex, very strategic, very frustrating and very sad."

The event has been rescheduled for November 10, the day before the Veterans Day holiday.
