Runner picked for Wounded Warrior Project team

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

It is not a stretch to call one Rock ‘n' Roll Marathoner's run historic and heroic.

Steve Martin, who has two prosthetic legs, ran the half marathon with his war buddy Jim Mitchell and Jim's wife Robin. Steve and Jim served together in Afghanistan, where Steve lost both of his legs in Sept. 2008. The half marathon was rough and even painful but Steve said he is not about to just sit on the couch.

Steve has run triathlons, marathons, 10ks, and 5ks. He recently was picked to be on the Wounded Warrior Project team that will climb Denali next June.
