BLOG: Backward, Juggling Marathon Runner

Running a marathon is one thing. Running it backward is another. Add juggling to the mix and then you get 32-year-old Joe Salter. Salter, who is from Florida, set a new fastest time for the feat.
In September, Salter ran the Quad Cities Marathon in Iowa in just under six hours.
He writes this on YouTube:

New World Record for:

Distance: 26.2 miles

Finish Time: 5hrs 51min 25sec

Special Thanks to Donnie Miller, Joe Moreno, Nicholas Sacco, Curtis/Soung Young and Big Bird for their super teamwork and for having “my back” with this world record attempt!
