Unlike Meredith Fitzmaurice's marathon run, Joe Salter's wasn't an accident. He's been training for years, running races, including triathalons, while juggling. A few days ago, he completed his first juggling marathon in Illinois. And he did it while running backwards:
Salter ran the entire marathon backwards while juggling.
“I want to do something that’s never been done before,” Salter said.
Salter provided entertainment and inspiration for runners as he juggled along the course for nearly six hours. In return supporters cheered him on as he attempted the feat.
“The crowd support just gives you that extra energy,” Salter said. “It’s been a bucket list goal for me to do this.”
What other sports should he attempt while juggling?
