Okay people, listen up. Big Jazz.
On this coming Monday, April 17, two of the world's best Jogglers will meet for the most epic joggling face-off in history. Michael Kapral, 33, of Canada, and Zach Warren, 24, a Harvard grad student, will go toe to toe in the legendary Boston Marathon for the Guinness World Joggling Record. What this means, of course, is that both men will run 26.2 miles while juggling 3 balls the whole way. It's jogging. It's juggling. It's Joggling. And it's awesome.
The current Guinness World Record for Joggling is 3 hours, 7 minutes, and 5 seconds. Michael Kapral currently holds the Guinness World Record for "running a marathon with a baby stroller." Zach Warren is studying the effect of laughter on children in Afghanistan and is training to break the world long-distance unicycle record.
