Joggling

What is Joggling:

“Joggling is a competitive sport that combines juggling with joggling. People who joggle are called jogglers.”

IJA World Joggling Championship: Since 1980, the International Juggling Association host the World Joggling Championship in event starting from 100m to 5k from 3 balls to 7 balls joggling.
Joggling  has made its appearance in my life in May 2014. After seen many video on Youtube of the great Michal Kapral, I decided to try it out. It started with many lap around my neighborhood for 3 months until I attempted a 5Km race. The passion with this goofy sport was immediate . The first year was composed of participation in many races for fun not taking that sport very seriously. However I quickly realized that my times were pretty good after seems many podiums and even winning a half marathon and 5K race while joggling against runners.
In 2015 while the IJA World Joggling Championship was held in Quebec, I participated in the 100m, 400m, 800m, 1600m and 4×100 in the mix team. It was quite the experience and realized that I was not the only one in this crazy world.

IJA World Joggling Championship 2015
 Since then I have concentrated on running, training with my club. By improving my speed and endurance I am able to joggle at a higher intensity for a longer period of time. Even though going to IJA World Joggling Championship was amazing, I must say that Joggling the 2017 Boston Marathon in 3h13min12sec was the highlight of my Joggling Career so far. Due to the time in the season, I was not able to joggle much other then on the treadmill due to the cold.
These are my last 4 Joggling races which are also my 4 PBs in the Marathon, Half Marathon 10K and 5K.
