THE STORY

Some people run for exercise, and others for competition, but Johnnie Jameson runs to heal. 

Scarred by the violence he witnessed while serving in the Vietnam War, Johnnie returned to America seeking peace. He found himself working for the United States Postal Service and decided to enter the first LA Marathon in 1986 and run it backwards. Since then, Johnnie has run every LA marathon consecutively, earning him the title of Legacy Runner. As he prepares for his 30th race, Johnnie must face his aging body and dig deeper than ever before to push forward. 

Whether it’s the barista at your coffee shop, the valet parking your car, or the mailman who comes to your door, there are extraordinary people behind every ordinary job. Johnnie is one of them.
