An Owensboro area track and cross country coach is running for the chance to be on the cover of a national magazine.

Bob O'Brien is one of nearly 600 people across the country in the Ultimate Men's Health Guy Search. The winner gets to appear on the cover of the November issue of Men's Health Magazine.

O'Brien is a teacher at Owensboro Middle School and coaches track, cross country, and basketball. He says he's received a lot of support since entering but was skeptical at first.

"I brought the magazine to the workout," said O'Brien, "and some of my athletes saw it and people I work out with. And they said 'Hey, why don't you try this,' and I said no. A couple of weeks later, they talked me into it."

As of this morning, O'Brien was in 10th overall. You can vote from now until early June at www.mhguysearch.com
