He’s back! Michal Kapral, the man who amazed the world by juggling while running a marathon in 2:50, the official world record, is aiming to set another record, this time with the half-marathon. And to top it off, he’s doing it to help raise money for AIDS orphans: Michal Kapral Joggling for AIDS Orphans at Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon Races
You really can’t get more inspiring than this. I wish Michal well with this endeavor, which takes place on the 19th of this month in Toronto. I’m sure this joggling world record will hold for a long time, maybe even forever. Michal Kapral was one of the first jogglers I ever heard about, and he has inspired me to this day.
Great interview with Michal Kapral by writer/runner/adventurer Noel Paine: Joggling Boggles My Mind
To support his charity, go to: 2014 Scotiabank Charity Challenge
I saw he got the record – nice! There is an online video of him mid-race… really impressive!
I am so impressed, though not necessarily shocked because Kapral is an amazing man who has set records before. Good luck with your upcoming race; sometimes I wonder if it helps to pretend juggle while running.
