Pure endurance: Wounded vet attempting 31 marathons in 31 days to run in St. Louis

"Jones’ project will bring him to St. Louis on Sunday where he will run his 11th marathon in so many days through Forest Park. He hopes people in the city will join him. “You don’t have to run the whole marathon,” Jones said. “But I want people to push themselves, whatever that means for you.”  “Everybody has to find their own way to contribute,” he said. “We have to use our own personal talents — and one of mine is to endure things that most people wouldn’t. “I think the Marines taught me that.”
