Reduced mileage leads to more fun for Ricky Cox

Ricky Cox has been a running fixture in the Fort Worth area for several years and is best known for winning the Cowtown Marathon three times and starting the popular Trinity 5000 Summer Series at Trinity Park. While he focuses on marathons when he was in his prime, he is reducing his mileage and having more fun as he focuses more on 5K distances as he nears his 55th birthday in October. At the 2014 Fort Worth Labor Day Run on another warmish (little over 80 degrees) and humid morning, Ricky took home the Grand Masters (50-59) trophy by finishing in 19:45. "You've got to realize you're getting older and can't put in the mileage you once did,'' Ricky said. "I'm not doing 20-milers anymore. My longest run now is 12 miles and I'm putting in about 35 miles a week." He said his body is not getting as "beat up" and he can recover faster. "I can run a 5K and have fun," he said. As he contemplates retiring from his long-time job with The T, he hopes to focus more on his running while spending more time with his family, including a dozen grandkids.

The 15K was designated as the RRCA State Championship race and easily taking top honors was Richard Powell of Fort Worth, whose 50:46 was far ahead of everyone else. The female winner was reigning Cowtown Marathon winner Elizabeth (Eder) North of Fort Worth, who zipped in at 58:04.

The 5K overall winners were Gabriel Zambrano of Fort Worth with a 16:14 and Jessica Smith of Roanoke, clocking in at 19:14.

In Arlington, James Jackson, 47, of Denton, fresh off winning the Cox Running Club 15K Challenge on Saturday, led the way again at the Texas Rangers Labor Day Run as he raced to a 16:53.7 (16:54.3 gun time) finish. Winning the female overall was Jodi Thompson of Grapevine with a 20:03.3.

Growing up in a family of runners and being involved with the Fort Worth Runners Club and local running community, we've built up quite a collection of race shirts in recent years. With that being said, at CSP, we've come to know what runners want in a shirt. With over 12 years of Screen Printing experience we are ready to implement that knowledge on your next event order. Specializing in up to 4-color screen printing, your race shirt will stand out from all of the rest. We've got all colors from white to vibrant, as well as cotton to moisture wicking. No matter if your design is simple or complex, we've got an expert artist on staff ready to work on your next design.
