NYC Marathon Runner Loses Car For 2 Days

NEW YORK, Nov. 13 (UPI) — An Albany, N.Y., man says he finished the New York City Marathon only to realize he couldn’t remember where he parked his car for two days.

Charles Petraske, 34, parked his hybrid Hyundai Sonata in a Manhattan garage Nov. 6 and boarded a charter bus to the Staten Island start line. He took only the key to his car and $40 with him, leaving the parking ticket on the dashboard in his car, the New York Post reported Sunday.

Petraske took a cab back to Bryant Park after completing the race but couldn’t remember where he parked his car.
”I was completely disoriented,” he told the newspaper. “I had no idea where the heck I was, or where my car is parked, and I had no phone and no money.”

Petraske’s wife drove into the city to pick him up when police said they couldn’t locate a missing car until it was towed.

The car was located two days later after Petraske called Cemusa, a company that runs the ads on billboards he remembers seeing at the parking garage. Based on his description of the ads, the company directed him to a Park n’ Lock near Madison Square Garden.
