62-Year-Old Cross-Country Runner Stops in Macon

Jack Fussell is a cross-country runner. Literally.

Fussell is running across the continental United States. His journey started in Savannah on January 12, 2013, and is going through Macon this week. His route will end in Monterey, Calif., sometime next fall.

The 62-year-old from Talking Rock, Ga. is running to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research. His father died of the disease in 2000.

Fussell has more than enough inspiration to keep his feet moving. A year after his father passed, doctors explained that Fussell's organs were trying to shut down. They gave him less than a year to live.

"That was in 2001," said Fussell. "That was the strangest feeling I've ever had in my life. I was scared to death."

Twelve years later, Fussell is very much alive. He has trained for his trip by running 100 to 125 miles every week.
