I’ve been catching up on my New York Times reading and was pleasantly surprised to see a runner recognized in the year end issue of The New York Times Magazine, “The Lives They Lived.”  Joy Johnson completed her 25th straight New York City Marathon in November at 86 years young.  She said it best when asked why she ran, “Running made her happy.”  Simple but wise words for us all.  Run in peace, Joy!
