    The veteran, who served two tours in Afghanistan, has been running 15 miles almost every single day, regardless of the weather. Though he usually makes his daily runs in Kansas City, he has also carried out his patriotic runs in Washington, D.C. three times. Timms said he hopes his display of patriotism will overshadow the negativity from other American citizens. I'm countering voices of negativity and defeatism in our country with a more uplifting, proud, and powerful gesture of patriotism, because those negative voices don't speak for all of America, he said. He added: When people see me running across the landscape with the American flag, perhaps it will cause them to pause for a moment and consider the meaning, value and importance of that flag and our country represents.
