Two marathoners who have outrun their disabilities

"Sunday night, a bus-length RV sporting “Rob Jones Journey” parked at the Hotel del Coronado. Monday, Jones woke up around 5:30 a.m., stretched, ate a light breakfast. By 7 a.m., he had fastened his prosthetics, bounded out of the RV and hit the road. He was joined by at least 20 other runners — school children, veterans, civilians — and dozens of spectators. The audience included Phil Noble, Matt Carpenter and Eric DeAvilla, former Marines who had served with Jones in Afghanistan’s Helmand province."
