The Juggling Triathlete

You raced in a triathlon and are feeling all bad ass. And you should! Running a triathlon is hard and you should be celebrating that bad assedness.

Now imagine swimming, biking, and running a triathlon…while juggling THE ENTIRE TIME.

That, my friends, is bad assedness multiplied by one thousand and that’s exactly what Joe Salter did. Not only did he set a World Record for being a juggling triathlete, he actually beat my triathlon running time and I was most definitely not juggling while I was running.

Although the World Record part is way more impressive than beating my triathlon running time.

His Finish Time: 1hr 57min

Swim: 1/4 Mile (21min 39sec) 402m
Bike: 16.2 Miles (1hr 42sec) 26 km
Run: 4 Miles (31min 29 Sec) 6.4 km

Placed 147 out of 246 Participants

What I love most is he’s smiling throughout. Triathlons are tough but it’s always good to be able to smile. It means you’re doing something you love.

Let’s celebrate the bad assedness that is Joe Salter, the juggling triathlete.

p.s. Life is too short not to be a little silly. Remember to always take joy in whatever you do.

    Thanks for the nice write up! I love your last line (Let’s celebrate…) :) Too funny.
    Stay tuned for my juggling children’s book coming out very soon, called Juggling Through the Jungle… It encompasses the skills I’ve used from juggling to achieve cool things, all in a cute story with jungle animals and of course juggling!

    Ok seriously? That is all kinds of awesome. It reminds me of the guy I know who rode the Whistler Gran Fondo (and finished) on a unicycle. Gotta hateful with whatever you are doing, right?
