A man from Colorado has broken a Guinness World Record when he ran a mile in under 5 minutes.

Andrew Vos, a 34-year-old from Broomfield, started running for the record at Broomfield Heights Middle School track while his son, Bodhi, rode in the stroller in front of him.

Vos said when he found out the record was 5 minutes even, he knew he could beat it.

"I contacted the Guinness World Records, and they alluded to it was 5 minutes. And I'm like, 'that's doable,'" Vos told KUSA-TV.

Vos set the record at 4 minutes, 57.1 seconds, just enough time to take the record.

"It feels good, it was a good accomplishment," Vos said after his run. "It'll be fun to look back and be in there with a kid of mine, our youngest kid."
