While everyone is congratulating themselves and everyone involved that the Pittsburgh Marathon was not held hostage to terrorist acts, everyone seems to ignore that once again the residents of Pittsburgh were held hostage to the marathon.

Over the 30-plus years since the first Pittsburgh Marathon, I have lived in several neighborhoods and in most have found myself hostage in my home, unable to go virtually anywhere from early in the morning until early afternoon, later in some places near the end of the race. I have gladly traded my ability to vote for Pittsburgh's next mayor for the freedom to have a normal Sunday in the suburbs.
