Scientist and Army engineer Dr. Travis Taylor ran in the 37th Marine Corps Marathon, the "People's Marathon" in Arlington, Va., Oct. 28, 2012. He ran in an experimental suit he developed with his National Geographic show "Rocket City Redneck" cohorts that could help reduce loss of limbs for military members. He started the run with 23,864 participants in the race that came from across the United States and 47 countries to run in the world's ninth largest marathon. The Marine Corps Marathon was created to promote physical fitness, generate community goodwill and showcase the organizational skills of the Marine Corps. Available in high definition.
