Honoring Jogging Icon Alberto Arroyo

There was a great story in the NY Times this morning on running legend Alberto Arroyo who is turning 93 years old this week. He is considered the first person (back in 1935) to run the well-known 1.6 mile path around the reservoir in Central Park in NY and was known at times for running up to 10 laps at a time. According to a 1985 NY State Senate resolution he is considered one of the pioneers of the sport and was honored for his "50 years of jogging." Happy Birthday Alberto!
