Double amputee aims to run 31 marathons in 31 cities in 31 days

"Survive, recover, live -- that's the motto of retired Marine Corps Sgt. Rob Jones. Jones is inspiring others with a 31-day marathon challenge that had him running around Baltimore during Friday morning's Veterans Day Parade. His mission is to run 31 marathons in 31 cities for 31 straight days. "Yeah, I feel pretty good. That was so cool," Jones said. He logged 812 miles in only one month. "He's been working towards this and training every single day for 18 months towards this goal," his wife Pam Jones said. Rob Jones, who is from Virginia, pounded the pavement with prosthetic legs."
