I’ve just gotten more into running in the past six months, so the last time I was in an airport, I grabbed a copy of Runner’s World for the very first time when I had run out of magazines to read. It turned out to be an amazing issue, and I discovered the inspiring story of Juli Windsor and John Young, who are elite runners with dwarfism.
Their stories of how they got into running and the challenges they have taken on were really interesting impressive, and the most moving part is that they were in Boston last year to run the marathon and got less than a mile from the finish line before the race was stopped by the explosions at the finish line. This year, they’re going back to run it again.
I chatted with them for TODAY.com, and they’re a really lovely duo. Here’s my story.
