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:
