American 50K record-holder Josh Cox is one of my favorite sponsored athletes. He's enthusiastic, has a great positive attitude, he's a wonderful spokesman, the only problem is ... he runs so far ... and so fast. There's nothing wrong with that, of course, it just makes me feel like I'm slacking on my lunch runs. For example, this weekend while I was volunteering at a great local underground 5K, Josh was running 28 miles. Yep, 28 miles. If you're keeping score, that's longer than a marathon. And it's his training run! Oh, and did we mention he averaged 6-minute miles? Because he did. And it's his training run!! But that's what I love about Josh. He knocks out a marathon-plus, then tweets the Garmin Connect data from his #weekendworkout and then answers questions from other runners and inspires them to run farther and faster. So we were thrilled when Josh paused for a moment to stop by our booth at the New York City Marathon to talk about our newest Forerunners, the 610 and 910XT. Check out the video to learn about these great training tools, and check out Josh's Twitter feed for great training advice.
Thanks, Josh, and keep up the great work!!
