Veteran running month of marathons makes Portland stop
"Now, he’s halfway through his “Month of Marathons,” which he started Oct. 12 in London. Over 31 days, Jones will run the equivalent of a marathon each day, totaling 812.2 miles over the month. The runs aim to bring attention to struggles faced by those who have served in the armed forces and Jones hopes to raise money for veterans’ charities. On Friday morning, Jones started his run in downtown Portland with FOX 12 there to send him off."
