My best wishes to elite marathoner and Facebook compadre, Josh Cox who this Sunday will attempt to break the American (and world) record in the 50K at the RF Chang Rock N' Roll Marathon being held in Arizona. He will be running to win the initial marathon distance, and then run an extra 5 miles or so around a nearby track at ASU Sun Devil Stadium.
The current American world record is held by Michael Wardian with a time of 2:55:05. The world record is currently set at 2:43:38. More on the story here.
Check out this awesome training video of Josh running with Olympian Ryan Hall for the initial 1:45 and then continuing on to finish this 30+ mile training run up in Mammoth:
Best wishes to Josh this Sunday - I'll be rooting for ya!
