A hero's welcome at Minute Maid Park

John Pyle is running across America -- from San Francisco to Key West -- to raise money and awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project. The ultra-marathoner began his run March 1 and will canvass over 3,000 miles during his journey.

On Sunday, he received a hero's welcome in Houston as he carried a flag once flown above Camp Eggers in Kabul, Afghanistan.
