Chillin' Wit' is a regular feature of the Daily News spotlighting a name in the news away from the job.
JOHNNY DOC is waiting for a challenge.
"It's up in the air," he says. "If anyone challenges me to run, I'll run."
John J. Dougherty, the business manager for Local 98 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, isn't talking about running for political office — not on this day, anyway. It's Sunday, and he's talking about actually running in the Gary Papa Father's Day Run to raise awareness for prostate cancer.
Dougherty, the co-chairman of the 10th annual run, gets his racing number — 98, of course — but no one challenges him, so he skips the run and spends his time making sure the event runs smoothly, shaking hands with participants, posing for pictures and taking jabs about his sunglasses in stride.
