DENVER — One-year-old Bodhi Vos had a front row seat for history.
"(I) just wanted to see how fast I could go the last mile with one of the kids in the stroller," recalled Andrew Vos, Bodhi’s father.
That’s how Andrew Vos came up with the idea.
The two-time collegiate track and field national champion took aim at the world record for the fastest mile pushing a stroller.
"(I) contacted the Guinness World Records, and they eluded to it was 5 minutes. And I’m like, 'that’s doable'," Vos said.
Provided this Denver dad could keep at least one hand on the stroller, all three wheels on the ground, and bundled Bodhi seat belted in place.
With a crowd rooting them on, it came down to the home stretch. Andrew dug deep, shaving nearly 3 seconds off the record. Officially, this father-son feat was 4:57.1.
"It feels good, it was a good accomplishment," said an out-of-breath Vos. "It’ll be fun to look back and be in there with a kid of mine, our youngest kid. And knowing that all the miles I put in our older kid Luka."
Why did Andrew choose Bodhi over his older brother?
“He’s lighter, a lot lighter," joked Vos.
