Wanna feel like a slacker? Meet Marine vet Rob Jones. Jones served in Iraq in 2008, and then went to Afghanistan in 2010.
That’s where a land mine took both his legs from just above the knees. Fast forward to 2012, and Jones took his prosthetic legs to the Paralympics, where he won a bronze medal in rowing.
Then in 2014, he raised over $120,000 for wounded vets by cycling from Maine to California. Now, he’s set a new goal to run 31 marathons in 31 days. He started yesterday in London’s Hyde Park.
Today, he’s in Philadelphia. Then, he’s off to New York City, Boston, Toronto, Detroit, and more.
You can follow his progress through his website: robjonesjourney.com
