RIP Joy Johnson

I'm sure you all saw the news about Joy Johnson passing away the day after running the NYC marathon.  (her 25th)

I'm sad for her daughter's loss  but can't say that I thought it was such a bad way to go. I suspect that hitting her head was the cause, but that's not really important.

What is important is that she lived to be 86 and was healthy and happy right up to the last. Kudos to Joy and may we all be so lucky!


  1. Yea, if I would go out in life - it would be exactly like she did. At 86, after running a marathon, and very peacefully.

  2. Agree 100% with you! May she rest peacefully.

  3. For the love of the sport. Determination. Perseverance.
