Two long-distance runners from our area will soon be embarking on a 500-mile run to Washington ​D.C. with a goal of raising money for an organization called Mission 22, a group committed to reducing incidents of veteran's suicide. Brian Tjersland of Dartmouth and Josh Milich of Rhode Island will start their journey on Veterans Day.  Both will join Jim Phillips this week on Townsquare Sunday to discuss their passion for long-distance running, and why they're involved with Mission 22.
