Record Holder - Josh Cox 50K
Ultramarathoner Josh Cox of the Mammoth Track Club is the American record holder in the 50K, which is just over 31 miles. He runs over 150 miles a week, and he is hoping to qualify for the marathon in the 2012 Olympics in London. Nick Garner of www.SportsTalk4Kids.com spoke to Joshua Cox while he was in Boston for the Boston Marathon. Cox wasn't running the famous race, but he was there to cheer for his friends Ryan Hall and Alistair Cragg, and to promote his book, "Soul Runners," that he wrote with Ryan Hall. Cox and his wife sponsor three kids in Africa, and he enjoys giving back to the community through Team World Vision and the Steps Foundation.
