Could you tell me what happened to Bucky Cox, the young child well known for his running ability in the '70s and '80s?
Bucky Cox was a Cordley School student who gained national prominence in the late 1970s by running marathons and setting age-group records for the grueling 26-mile-plus event. Cox quit running in 1983 at the age of 11 after passing the 12,000-mile plateau. Three years later, Cox left Lawrence with his trainer, Ray Foster, and his mother, Joni Maxwell, when Foster was hired as a psychologist for Grambling State University in Grambling, La. At last report, Cox was a wildfire fighter in Oregon.
